Arctic Blast Producing Coldest Thanksgiving In Decades

November 22nd, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Thursday will be the coldest Thanksgiving in decades for most of the Northeast, the result of an Arctic blast of air that's pushing temperatures 15 to 25 degrees colder than a year ago. Even with a sunny sky forecast on Thursday, little warming is expected throughout the day. The last time it was this cold in the Northeast on Thanksgiving was 1996.

Friday morning may be even colder in some of those spots, with morning wind chills still in the single digits — or colder. Wind gusts in some of the major cities may reach 30 mph, adding to the chill. The high in Boston is expected to be 18 degrees; in New York, 27.

Temperatures should warm back up a bit over the weekend.
