Boston is experiencing record-breaking cold temperatures

The arctic blast of freezing air that sent shivers through the city on Saturday broke record low temperatures - and worse weather is on the way.

The temps were expected to plunge to 22 degrees early Saturday morning, which would shatter the mark for the record-low for November 11 of 28 degrees set in 1933.

Thursday and Friday are expected to be sunny and somewhat warmer with a high of 50 degrees, although that still falls below the average temperature of 53 degrees for this time of year.

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.

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 Sussex, the day started around 22 degrees, then dropped to 20 degrees, just a few ticks above its record low, according to climate from the New Jersey Weather & Climate Network at Rutgers University. It was 24 degrees in Central Park as of 7 a.m.

Tonight, temperatures will return to the mid-20s, but the wind will calm down. Showers are possible overnight as the temperatures hover in the mid-30s.
