    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    Tuesday may turn out to be tricky on the weather front with a triple-header of rain, sleet and snow possible.

    Showers are expected Monday evening, which will turn into freezing rain in some areas overnight, and eventually snow Tuesday morning, according to Storm Team 5's Alcia Roman.

    The combination could wreak havoc on the morning commute due to slick roads.

    Between 1 and 2 inches of snow is expected, with flurries tapering off by the afternoon.

    Temperatures are expected to top out in the low 20s Tuesday and steadily drop throughout the day. It will also be gusty with winds as high as 30 mph.

    Expect the rest of the week to be frigid, with temperatures in the low 20s Wednesday and Thursday and chances for more snow on Thursday and Friday.
