Boston shatters 116-year cold weather record

The previous record low of 21° was set in 1973 according to the National Weather Service.

But April is also letting Tajiri explore his surroundings, so that he can become as independent as his father is. In the meantime, April has her hands full taking care of six-month-old Tajiri, who is already 10 feet tall.

A warmup to more typical November weather is expected.

This morning's new record low was 3° colder than the previous record.

He added that the normal high for this time of year is a 53 degrees, a full 18 degrees warmer than Saturday's high of 35. In Philadelphia, the record of 21 degrees still appears to have gone unbroken.

The forecast calls for 50 degrees on Monday, setting off eight straight days with high temps of at least 50, AccuWeather said.

Things will warm up slightly for this weekend's sunny Sunday, with highs reaching into the mid- to upper-40s. Today's daily low temperature mark for this date is 19 degrees, set in 1991. There is a slight chance of showers between midnight and 4 a.m. on Wednesday, although less than one-tenth of an inch of rain is expected to fall.
