6:18 am

30s. to hit 32 early since 1979 and the latest to ever hit freezing in boston was back just a few years ago in 2009 when it was december 6th before we had the final freeze. here we go with that cold air now. so it's going to be with us for a couple of days. that's all going to shift trend afterwards. after a cold weekend, look at the middle part of next week. we've got low to middle 60s turning much milder. the wind turns into the southwest and the high pressure center moves to the south of us. the next front will come along with showers on about thursday to introduce another cold shot. time now for our trivia. >> i'm leaning towards d. >> the answer is -- >> finally. >> you got a good one there, 32 degrees.
6:41 am
