BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — New England saw record low temperatures this week as autumn turns into winter.
Highs ranged between 20 to 30 degrees Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. Boston's high is at 30 degrees.
Early Wednesday morning, wind chill temperatures dipped down to the single digits, with Boston at 5 degrees.
Worcester also saw record lows Wednesday, according to WBZ-TV, with lows reaching 14 degrees. The previous record for the date was 15 degrees.
WBZ NewsRadio's Jim MacKay spoke with New England residents as they prepared for the cold weather.
"I guess I start my car before I get out in it... We're in New England. It's going to be 50 Friday," Debbie, a Quincy resident, said. "As long as there's no snow, that's fine."
Brianna, of Hull, said she's has to walk her dog in the cold weather. But, her puppy isn't winter ready.
"She hates [the cold weather], just like me," Brianna said.
