23 November 2018

Accuweather says the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be buffeted by wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour with temperatures feeling 10 to 20 degrees below zero.

According to the National Weather Service, it should be great traveling weather if you are headed out on the roads for Thanksgiving Wednesday or Thursday.

The temperatures on Thanksgiving are projected to be the coldest since 1901, when the high was 26 degrees. The high in Boston is expected to be 18 degrees, and in NY, 27.

Burlington, Vermont, Albany, New York, and Providence, Rhode Island may also see record lows on the holiday, according to The Weather Channel. An arctic air mass will rush through the Northeast.

The record low for the Thanksgiving holiday in Boston was 11 degrees (set on November 27, 1873) and the record minimum high was 24 degrees (on November 28, 1901), according to the weather service.

"If things stay as is, this will be the third-coldest Thanksgiving in NY history", with the mercury set to reach a low of 19 degrees in 1901.

The temperatures will then climb into the high 40s and low 50s this weekend - although at the cost of rain showers.
