So I was curious what we might be trekking through on Thanksgiving and it looks like the Butterball won't be the only frozen turkey showing up on Thursday.

According to NOAA

Thanksgiving  Day:

Mostly sunny, with a high near 16. Blustery, with a northwest wind 18 to 21 mph, with gusts as high as 32 mph.

Now this may just mean that my hubby, who was planning to go hunting, may opt for turkey and football instead.

Also, for some strange reason it gives me a little peace knowing that in New York for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade I always enjoy the forecast is sunny, 29 degrees and no wind.

So will this be our coldest Thanksgiving on record? Nope. NOAA shows:

At Bangor, the warmest Thanksgiving was in 1953 when the high temperature was 60 degrees. The lowest temperature observed was 7 above in 1974.


Unless you count the windchill which will make it feel like -2.  Sheesh!
