This Thanksgiving Could Be One of the Coldest on Record for the Hudson Valley
It seems fall disappeared overnight and suddenly turned into winter here in the Northeast. Just a few weeks ago we were enjoying above average temperatures.
Last Thursday's snow, which forecasters initially thought wouldn't amount to much, ended up being a significant event causing a commuting nightmare for many. Many are hoping this isn't a sign of things to come. If that's the case, you may not want to look ahead for the Thanksgiving forecast.
Hudson Valley Weather is saying that the week will start with highs in the 30s and a chance of rain mixing with snow. There could even be a chance for light accumulation by Tuesday, with 1 to 3 inches possible.
Once the next round of wintery precipitation is out of the area, the temperatures are expected to plummet. Lows Tuesday and Wednesday night are forecasted to fall into the lower 10s.
So how about Thanksgiving? Cold. Temperatures will look more like January rather than late November. Forecasters are saying highs in the lower 20s with windy conditions. Factor in the wind chill and could feel close to 0 degrees F. Lows Thanksgiving night could fall into the single digits with the wind continuing to whip around, making it feel even more frigid.
HVW says the record low for November 22 was 14 F in 1984. If the forecast holds out, we'll be breaking that all-time record this year.
