tell you about everything else that's here. for now that's the latest live from gillette. >> that was good effort. thanks. >> i'm impressed. >> keep it here on 7 on new your year's eve. enjoy us after the game for complete post game coverage. it's harder than it looks. it looks like she was doing like a golf swing. >> she's an athlete. she's just trying to be humble. much more to come including wild weather in missouri. flood water reaching historic levels and causing historic damage. >> then firefighters are coming together to help a 4-year-old boy with cancer. >> and it seemed like that cold wouldn't leave us yesterday but temperatures in most spots above freezing and climbing in the 40s today. we'll get to the forecast up next. >> comedian to the rescue here. we'll have the details coming

asked him something along the lines, in your underwear drawer, is it one brand? one color? those kinds of questions. >> the things you want to know. >> yeah. one question to ask the president, that wouldn't be it but that's okay. milder temperatures for us today. we could not get rid of that cold yesterday. apt least not until the evening so we are melting as we make it into the afternoon and we're dry for new year's eve. all the festivities looking good for it, but you'll want to bundle up. cold blast as we get into the beginning of next week. it will really start to feel a whole lot more like winter. warm weather no longer. now we've had a damp and dreary start to the day. still some areas of drizzle out there and also some fog reducing visibilities in nashua, locally dense fog, out on the cape you'll run into some fog so something to pay attention to. visibility is okay. you shouldn't have any problems getting out of boston if you have a flight within the next couple of hours. current temperatures are close to freezing or just above it.
freezing. this is where the concern lies, when you have the temperatures that are right near freezing like 32 degrees. you can actually have colder temperatures at the surface, on the ground. that means that there's still the potential for ice to exist on sidewalks and driveways and those back roads so please pay attention to that. not much in southeastern mass but around 495, route two, there might be a concern as we get through the next few hours. now, we do have drier air that wants to work into place. so hopefully we'll see sunshine today but it will take a little bit for those clouds to erode and reveal the sunshine for us. nevertheless, those temperatures getting a boost today and above average for us once again we climb into the low to mid 40s for the afternoon for most spots with a light wind out of the west-northwest. you can see the highs here 38 for worcester, topping out at 43 for boston and first night forecast for us, looking dry but also looking cool. wind chill readings making it feel like it's in the mid 20s so
head out and we're heading into a new year so to give us a look back into 2015 -- >> thanks. our average temperature for this december, still 45 degrees. decembers in the past, even the warmest ones haven't been this warm so yes, we're still on track for this to be the warmest december that we've seen. below-average temperatures and our temperatures are running almost 11 degrees warmer than where they should be this time of year. so in the past, warm decembers have meant snowfall totals in the teens but we're not making any promises with that statement. and since we're looking back at the year, let's go back to february. it was the second coldest on record with only one day of above normal temperatures so quite the opposite from this december and it looks like we're staying cool as we head into the new year, huh? >> you know, people have been asking a lot, are we going to have to pay for the warmth we saw in december? well, i would say looking at february, we already prepaid for that warmth in december.
of 2016, off to a cold start certainly. not so bad for the winter classic tomorrow. i think this is really perfect for a good hockey game. 39 degrees. we get some sunshine as well and here's a look at the seven on seven forecast. as far as big snow makers go, it looks very quiet the next seven to 10 days but we could get some squalls, snow showers and/or flurries on monday. cold temperatures is what we need to prepare for. >> thank you. wild weather in the midwest. new video from missouri showing a raging river wash away a home, carrying it right down a river. it slammed into a bridge. yoef night that historic flooding shut down i-55, a major highway for the first time ever and today the mississippi river is expected to crest in st. louis, about 13 feet above flood stage. the flooding is being blamed for more than 20 deaths in missouri and illinois. that number is expected to rise. some neighborhoods are surrounded by water. hundreds of homes are flooded.
and the governor of missouri says the threat is far from over. >> this is going to be awhile. you don't have this much water or a population of businesses, public assets and you just -- the water goes down. it's not over. >> the coast guard and the national guard have been deployed. they're ready for rescues as officials monitor several levees in danger of breaching. okay. just ahead, a wild wreck in new hampshire, part of hillary clinton's secret service detail why the driver killed in the crash should not have been behind the wheel in the first place. coming together for one of their own. firefighters showing support for
the leading cough liquid only provides relief for four hours, but did you know there's a product that lasts for twelve hours? try delsym twelve hour cough liquid. its advanced formula works by immediately releasing powerful medicine that acts fast while its extended release medicine lasts for 12 hours. in fact, delsym lasts three times longer than the leading cough liquid. for all day or all night relief, try delsym -the #1 doctor recommended 12 hour cough liquid. this has been medifacts for delsym . new england's energy comes from a pool of energy producers. eversource buys it at a set market price and delivers it to you. but that pool is shrinking, causing energy supply rates to go up and down. so we're working with partners across the region to increase our natural gas supply and bring in affordable, clean hydropower from canada. we're leading the way toward the solution... because more energy means lower energy supply rates for you.
>> firefighters coming together to help the grandson of one of their own. >> the 4-year-old is battling the same rare cancer another firefighter's granddaughter once did. joey mc donahue was diagnosed with neuro blastoma. he lives across the street from a woman finishing her treatments for the very same disease. family and community members are floored with how this tragedy struck the department twice. >> we work together, we play together, we raise our kids together. >> two people in the same neighborhood just across the street from each other. it was unbelievable.

mid flight. some stayed in providence overnight and others took cars and buses to continue on with their trip. a new flight will take off this morning. >> we get a first taste of winter weather. state police are reminding you to remove snow and ice from your vehicle before you hit the road. they tweeted this picture of a smashed windshield in andover. ice came off a truck and driver suffered cuts on his face and eyes from the local glass. police cracking down on drivers who do not clear off cars. this extreme example, the driver of this car cleared just a small patch of the windshield. the rest of it covered. police pulled the car over and gave the driver a citation. >> i don't know how you would even be able to drive in that situation. >> i don't know, either. yesterday i was driving, though, and some ice and snow came off a car and i like -- went like this. what am i doing? i'm driving. it's so scary.
>> up next, more trouble. a federal report uncovering more problems and it could impact your commute. >> more melting in store for us this afternoon so sheets of ice coming off of rooftops and elevated surfaces. something else to watch out for as you're walking around town. we'll get to the forecast up next. >> plus we're heading back out to foxboro, gillette stadium ready to host some hockey but how did the patriots feel about the home turf being turned into an ice rink? why let someone else have all the fun? the sometimes haphazard, never boring fun. the why can't it smell like this all the time fun. the learning the virtue of sharing fun. why let someone else have all the fun? that's no fun.

you're driving around the areas for the early hours of today. current temperatures just crawling past freezing so icy areas are still a very good likelihood in those spots that are near 32 degrees because it's going to take awhile for that ice to actually melt. we will see the clouds break apart as we head into the afternoon. for a little bit of sunshine, more melting in store as our temperatures climb in the low to mid 40s for most spots. but it is a cold start to the new year. we'll get to that extended forecast in a few minutes. >> breaking overnight, belgium police arrested a tenth person in connection with last month's terror attacks in paris. 22-year-old charged with terrorist murder and participation in a terrorist organization. police also found several cell phones with the suspect and are now expecting them. 130 people were killed in the november 13 attacks. >> also breaking overnight, the mother of texas affluenza teen, ethan couch, is back in the united states after being extradited from mexico.

get up to compliance with federal require manies and points out the report doesn't question the quality of maintenance work. in the past they have estimated it would cost $7 billion to get all trains, tracks and stations into good working order. we now know the man who was killed in a crash involving secret service agents in wakefield, new hampshire should not have been behind the wheel. investigators say he did not have a driver's license. he swerved onto the wrong side of the road, crashing head-on into the car carrying four agents wednesday night. officials say the agents had just come from surveying a campaign site. >> they were working as part of the protection efforts for secretary clinton. >> hillary clinton later released a statement offering her condolences to all of the victims involved. and a young boy was putting fire
