Coldest temperatures of the season so far on the way; Thanksgiving Day looking pleasant


The week of Thanksgiving is starting on the cold side.

Freeze Warnings have been issued for New York City as temperatures are expected to drop to around 32 degrees for the first time of the season. Heading into the holiday, temperatures will be on the climb, and it looks like Thanksgiving 2021 is shaping up to be a pleasant one.

No weather-related issues are expected for the all-important Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday morning. 

After some clouds lingered around in the afternoon, skies will clear out Monday night. Temperatures will drop into to around the freezing mark in the city, but it will be breezy at times. Overnight, wind chill values will go down into the 20s.

Tuesday will feature a good deal of sunshine, however the winds will be kicking up during the day. Temperatures will only climb into the lower 40s, but gusts to 25 mph will make it feel more like the 30s all day long. The gusty winds could also cause a few delays for the area airports as many are expected to travel during the day. 

As for the big travel day — Wednesday — it is looking all good. The winds should ease up and it will be a sunny day as high pressure slides across the region. It will remain to be on the cool side as temperatures climb into the mid to upper 40s.

On Thanksgiving Day, expect a sunny start. A pleasant southwesterly wind will bring temperatures up into the mid 50 during the day. Some clouds will move in the afternoon as a cold front approaches the East Coast. 

A cold front will cross through the region early on Friday bringing some showers around during the morning hours. Temperatures will end up into the upper 40s, then trend downward for the weekend. 

Saturday and Sunday will feature plenty of sun, but it is going to be cold. Temperatures will only top out in the lower 40s, but a brisk northerly wind will make it feel much colder during the period.
