Saturday marked the second consecutive day of record-breaking cold for the Boston area.

Highs will climb into the mid-40s as the sun tries its best, but it will still feel in the teens with a 5 to 10 miles per hour wind.

Temperatures in Boston hit 23 degrees Saturday morning, making it the coldest November, 11 since 1901, according to the National Weather Service.

He has condemned homosexuality and said he believes some U.S. communities are living under Islamic religious law. However, in the event of either disqualification or withdrawal, votes cast for Moore would not be certified.

The Friday night chill was expected to give way to warmer weather over the weekend and into next week, according to the National Weather Service. "It might not be record-breaking, but it could come close and people should expect to have below average temperatures for the foreseeable future", Simpson said.

Temperatures in Central Park dropped to 24 degrees, beating the record of 28 degrees in 1933. Records at other locations may also shatter, including a record low of 29 degrees set at LaGuardia in 1956 and a record low of 25 degrees set at Newark that same year. It was 24 degrees in Central Park as of 7 a.m.

A slightly warmer Sunday will see temperatures in the 40s and more comfortable numbers will return during the week. Showers are possible overnight as the temperatures hover in the mid-30s.
