11:19 pm
boston. but sometimes, like this afternoon, they can make the trek all the way across new england coming from the great lakes. that's what happened out there throughout the afternoon hours. but other than the cold air coming over the warmer lakes, no real weather player on the chessboard tonight. this front down here will stay put and that will not bother us this weekend. 30s in town. boston at 34. norwood 33. bedford at 32. but there is some wind out here. if you caught jadiann's report early in the newscast, there was wind blowing the hair around. so it feels like 22 in the city. worcester feels like 17. fitchburg feels like 21. for tonight, partly cloudy with a chilly breeze. temps 20s to low 30s. when you factor in that wind, if you are out and about for night two, it will be cold out there later on tonight. through the day tomorrow, mix of clouds and sunshine. cool, but these numbers are actually where we should be for this time of year, but it's adjustment, especially considering we just came off the warmest december on record. and where we are going, early next week, temps will be below normal, way below normal. boston tomorrow afternoon, 41.

11:21 pm
on cold temps, really cold. on 7 forecast. we're not talking record cold, but againing when you're coming off such a warm december, temperatures monday and tuesday will feel all this much more colder with temps only reaching the 20s. so far no snow in the pattern that's coming at us early next week, but stay tuned. that may change next weekend. enjoy this weekend. >> elizabeth: two babies born at the same time now sharing the title of 2016's first born. here's carmelita skaza born in worcester at 12:02 a.m. and just four pounds and eight ounces. also born at 12:02 was little zoe coming just two minutes after the ball dropped at times square. tufts medical center delivered this first baby cochampion. her parents calling her a winner. >> i was surprised that she came... that she was the first in boston at all. so i would be happy with just that, but if we can take the state, then we'll take that, too. >> a little celebrity going on.
