No thaw for Thanksgiving Day weather

No thaw for Thanksgiving Day weather

The temperatures on Thanksgiving are projected to be the coldest since 1901, when the high was 26 degrees.

Thursday, the forecast calls for a mix of sun and cloud, starting off with a wind chill of -21 C and -12 in the afternoon. And the way it appears, both Boston and Worcester will have the coldest Thanksgiving in recorded history, using this method.

Albany, N.Y., records a low of 5 degrees in 1972 with the next lowest almost a century earlier, 9 degrees on Nov. 30, 1876 (when Thanksgiving was celebrated on the last Thursday of November).

"Certainly, come June when it's hot and muggy and sticky in a classroom they'll be complaining", he said.

Snow squalls are possible for western NY and Pennsylvania on Wednesday as an advancing cold front brings lake effect snow across the area.

Meteorologists predict that the D.C. area could experience the coldest Thanksgiving since 1996.

Burlington, Vermont, Albany, New York, and Providence, Rhode Island may also see record lows on the holiday, according to The Weather Channel.

The high Friday will be slightly better than Turkey Day - 31 degrees, with a low of 28. 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.

More snow ahead: Up to 10 cm expected again
Snow no! Expect up to 20 centimetres in some areas Wednesday afternoon

Otherwise Wednesday will be partly sunny, with highs in the lower 40s and a slight chance of snow showers in the afternoon.

Wind gusts increase on Friday and definitely Saturday approaching 100 miles per hour above treeline. "Make sure you wear a hat and gloves".

It depends on where you are going, of course.

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

But wintry-cold temperatures are flowing across the Great Lakes, which will generate snow for some of the areas off Lake Michigan, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario through Wednesday.

"Air typical of the heart of winter will anchor across the Northeast on Thanksgiving Day".

The snow-covered roads and reduced visibility prompted many schools to cancel classes for the second time in less than a week.
