Planning to go to the famous paradise on Thanksgiving?
New York City has only seen three thanksgivings since 1
870 when the high temperature reached not less than 30 degrees, reported the weather service. But on Thursday it is expected to float in the mid 20’s with a wind chill that produces sensitive temperatures in the teenage years.
New England will also see temperatures dip 10 to 15 degrees below average, with Boston’s weather having the potential to crush its coldest Thanksgiving no more than 24 degree set in 1901. The temperature is expected to hit high 22 degrees or less.
Providence, Rhode Island; Philadelphia; and Burlington, Vermont are also likely to have free temperatures that can break record, according to Weather.com. On the bright side, these cities are expected to be gentle snow and rain on Thanksgiving.
But the Gulf Coast can expect rain over Wednesday and Thursday morning, according to the National Weather Service. California, which fights for devastating fires at both ends of the state, can expect Wednesday rain, which can be very heavy yesterday Thursday morning.
Weather in the rest of the country should remain relatively quiet during the holiday weekend, during which 54.3 million people are expected to travel 50 miles or more from their homes, according to AAA. It is the highest number of people expected to take roads, waterways, railways and skis since 2005, AAA reported.
