Forecasters warn Thanksgiving could be the coldest on record

Forecasters warn Thanksgiving could be the coldest on record

The good news is the high temperature will climb a little higher than it did on Thursday and the winds will have died down a little. New York City will see low temperatures in the 20s Thanksgiving morning.

New York City's forecast high is 27 degrees, which may not break the record for coldest Thanksgiving, but will likely be in the top 3. This one takes the average of the high and low temperature for the day... to get the coldest day as a whole instead of one individual record.

Light snowfall is in the forecast for Northeast Ohio; Erie, and western Upstate New York into late Wednesday afternoon and evening. The National Weather Service is warning of "rapidly changing weather and road conditions" that could drop 1 to 2 inches in a matter of minutes.

Anyone planning on being outside Thursday should be dressed for severe winter weather.

The timing is not the best, but our first real storm of the season arrives late Wednesday and goes through Friday with the brunt of the snow falling late Wednesday into Thursday morning.

The temperatures will be more like what New Yorkers see in January.

"We're not jumping into the Atlantic", he said. Friday morning lows will be even colder. And the way it appears, both Boston and Worcester will have the coldest Thanksgiving in recorded history, using this method. The game will be held at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Fitzpatrick Stadium. The lingering winds will make it feel like the temperature is in the teens across most the area.

Friday will be sunny, with a high near 30, forecasters said.

AAA is predicting that 54.3 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more away from home this Thanksgiving, a 4.8 percent increase over past year. It appears this year is going to be much closer to 2013 and 2014, as colder temperatures remain in the region until the weekend.

The Portland jetport did not report any canceled flights Tuesday and had only minor delays, and the Amtrak Downeaster ran on schedule.
