    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.

    2012 blew into the Chicago area -- literally -- with winds in excess of 50 mph reported throughout the day. But now comes the cold -- and snow, depending on where you are.

    A Winter Storm Warning was issued for LaPorte County in northwest Indiana through Tuesday morning. Lake effect snow is possible late Sunday and into Monday as cold winds blow over the warm lake waters, NBC 5 meteorologist Pete Sack says.

    Accumulations of 5-10 inches are possible with blowing and drifting snow.

    Some light flurries fell in the Chicago area Sunday afternoon and are possible over the next few days, but no accumulations are expected.

    Expect temperatures to drop into the low 20s Monday and Tuesday before creeping back up into the high 30s and 40s toward the middle and end of the week.
