beach or bri you were' mentions about cooking out. >> grilling, that's what i told my husband to do tonight for christmas dinner. fire up the grill, why not? 69 is the high for boston, why not. 70 beverly and norwood looking more like easter. even the 4th of july it was 72 for the 4th of july this year. so these temperatures are very bizarre. they were' record setters across the board. we're holding down the spot. we'll go down in the record books as the warmest december on record. how have other warm decembers fared? the top three have seen a seasonal snow total in the teens. so just food for thought. all hope is not loft because if you remember last year 59 degrees was our high on christmas. normal high is 39. that puts into perspective and we know what happened as we made it into the end of january and february. england. winter still on tap for us. i do believe. current temperatures mid
boston, 62, worcester and those dew points are still up quite a bit as well. i mentioned before closer the dew points are to the air temperature this air could be sash raitted. we're seeing some fog coast. well. it's where we see the light winds where we will be most likely to get the fog forming. partly cloudy sky, if you are in appear area that doesn't get fog you will be able to see the beautiful full moon. fog already forming for cape cod and also for the islands. visibility is very much reduced on none tuck. dense fog advisory in effect through tomorrow morning at 9:00 am. the full moon full christmas moon is full at 6:11. this hasn't happened until 1977. won't happen again until 2034 so rudolf's notes may not be necessary as santa arrives directly from bermuda wearing his shorts and flip-flops, mild temperature, 46-56.
day on tap for us. but probably not record breakers. looking at upper 50s for most. mid 50s worcester. even low 60s popping up in southeast massachusetts. precip. changes we wait until sunday for our best chances. overnight saturday into sunday to get more rain working in here. so running through the timeline clouds with us all weekend. colder temperatures for saturday and the rain arrives saturday night into sunday. this is going to pump through a cold front after it and boy, do the temperatures plummet. 59 for sunday. all the wait down to the mid 30s for highs on monday which lead us to the potential for snow as we get into tuesday. this could be plowable snow. we're nailing down details. while we broke this record for the latest for snowfall for worcester probably not going to happen for boston, it's looking like a bit of a mess on tuesday. we'll keep an eye on it and
have a great evening. >> reporter: bill check probably has more in common with the grinch than he does with jolie old st. nick but he let the players have christmas off. santaville must like what he is seeing or he is rewarding his guys for a job well done. whatever the case belichick is far from satisfied. with all the pats injuries issues which means his quarterback needs to be on his toes with an every changing supporting cast. >> everyday coach announces new players on the team so it's just something that we've gotten used to and whoever comes and goes, you know, you, you maybe you will see the guys again. but you always try to welcome the guys, try to get them up to speed because you never know. the guys can help you win. we've guys playing here that weren't here a month ago
that is the way it is. every player is looking for -- you know what your team is all about and if there is players like that that are available that can help your team you try to have them. >> reporter: holidays are all about spending quality time with those who know you best. right. but that is probably doesn't apply to the patriots and jets. neff any love loft and fewer secrets which means we're probably in for another nail biter this sunday. >> divisions, twice a year. watching them whatever you can because you know you play them twice. they are a little better than other teams. we know them a little better so it makes it always a close game. >> every year the jets play us tough. definitely high energy game. going to be a bunch of energy in the stadium so we @ave to have a good job, go out there, match the energy
whoa! >> where did that come from? >> reporter: you are never going to confuse him for carter but don't say kelly can't throw down. he provided the big slam that was the highlight of last night's win over the horn nets. c.'s are a game and a half behind raptors in the atlantic division. who want want to spend their holiday in hawaii. the harvard basketball team enjoying their time at the diamond head classic advancing to the time after blowing the doors off of auburn and they'll take on oklahoma in tomorrow night's title game. the nationals sneaking in a little last-minute shopping reportedly signing daniel
