it will be a chillier start to your january. it all comes on the heels of a very warm december. the record for the warmest december ever, 2001, average an afternoon high temperature of 44.1. we're averaging this year, 50.9. i mean, we're not just going to break this record, we're going to crush it. look, i've never seen a record like this fall that dramatically. this is really going to replace that 2001 number, dramatically so. because today, you were 48 degrees. still, that's 9 degrees above average. tomorrow, you'll be 50. so we may take that 50.9, and two. but it's going to be a 50-point something for your average december temperature. unheard of right? vortex satellite and radar showing us some showers moving across the area. they're all pretty light. with a flashier yellow. fire island may see a little moderate rain here, shortly,
we have this trailing little band back here. this little line, and that's what we're dealing with right now. that makes its move through the area. there's your air mass for tomorrow. a much better looking day. a sun and cloud mix. you see more sunshine out there, and temperatures again, around 50 degrees. so the numbers overnight. 45, with that passing shower chance, tomorrow we hit the 50- degree mark with, let's call it partly sunny at times. but a bit milder out there. for the ball drop, 9:00 p.m., it's 43 degrees. i'm not talking big winds. midnight, it's 40 degrees, as the ball is dropping. 2:00a.m. is 36. going to continue to get colder as you go through the overnight. i think we'll be above freezing in new york city, probably an overnight low of about 33. watch what the temperatures do. i talk how it's going to be chillier going into january. still, remember the average this time of the year, is 38, or 39 degrees. we'll be 45 on friday. 42 saturday. 43 sunday with a good looking sky.
monday will be the coldest day so far this season. the first time subfreezing at 29, or 30 degrees to start off today. 44 wednesday. monday really sticks out with that 39, right? that's where you should be. >> here comes january. >> here it comes. on average. otis is here with a look at sports. >> dick, the knicks cleanthony early gets shot. and we'll have carmelo's reaction. and week 17, the jets shuffle off to buffalo. >> a live picture inside our cbs 2 control room, where everyone is hard at work. do you know you can stream all

and doing relatively well, as well as you could be. i think we'll take that. >> this is life or death, what we're dealing with is a game, it's basketball. we can come and get after it tomorrow. i think we should just take this day and kind of get away from it, and kind of count our blessings. this situation could have been much uglier. >> an mri showed no structural damage and he won't need surgery. while the knicks were focused off the court, the nets had to deal with the orlando magic on the court. the nets had a season low 2 turnovers. shane larken through traffic, finds willie reed who knows you've got to get up to throw down. brooklyn up 1 with under 1:00 to go, finding harris for the bucket. the nets allowed 100 points in 10 straight games, as they fall 100-93. what do you give the jet
