    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.

    Welcome to the last official day of summer. Hope you brought a jacket and umbrella.

    Friday kicked off with temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s, and the rest of the day isn't expected to warm up beyond the mid-60s.

    Eastbound showers likely will arrive in Chicago before 1 p.m. as winds gust as high as 15 mph, according to the National Weather Service. The rest of the day remains cloudy with a low around 50 degrees before showers move in again overnight.

    Saturday showers also are likely, mainly between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m., then partly sunny with temperatures about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than the average.

    A low of 42 is predicted for Saturday night and a chilly Sunday with a high near 59.

    Those temperatures are expected to stick around for the early part of next week.
