Boston is experiencing record-breaking cold temperatures

Autumn may not be officially over, but it will sure feel like winter in the Garden State this weekend.

The cause of these record breaking temperatures is an arctic system that settled over much of New England early Saturday morning, said Simpson.

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.

Boston broke a 116-year-old record Saturday morning when the temperature dropped to 23 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The deep freeze hit the Big Apple Friday night as the temperature bottomed out at a record-low 26 degrees. "The last time it got so cold was in 1901 when it was 24 [degrees]", said Bill Simpson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service.

Temps began to slowly creep up on Saturday as Central Park recorded a brisk 37 degrees by the afternoon, still well below the norm of 56.

In JFK, temperatures dropped to 24, beating the 1973 record of 28 degrees.

Tonight, temperatures will return to the mid-20s, but the wind will calm down.

There will be some relief later in the day Saturday as the sun comes out, winds settle down and temperatures nudge into the upper 30s, Storm Team 4 says.
