Brisk New Year's Eve

After a cold, cold night, today will have partly cloudy skies with a high of 26 degrees. As we slip into New Year's Eve festivities, temperatures will drop to 19 degrees for an overnight low. Thursday and Friday are expected to warm up a little with highs in the high 30s and low 40s.

Early show on NYE

What do go out on New Year's Eve without staying out until midnight? Catch The Crumpletons show at Jazzhaus from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The Crumpletons play a mix of '60s rock and funk. Cover charge is $5. The Jazzhaus is at 926 1/2 Massachusetts St.
