7:00 AM | **One of the coldest Turkey Days ever for much of the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US**

Paul Dorian

The big story of the week around here will be the Arctic blast that arrives later today and it will result in one of the coldest Thanksgiving Days ever for much of the Mid-Atlantic region and Northeast US. Temperatures late night should drop to near the 25 degree mark and then struggle on Thursday to reach the freezing mark for highs. The last Thanksgiving Day in Washington, DC with highs in the 30’s was 18 years ago on November 23, 2000 when the temp only reached 38. The lows on Thursday night will be in the upper teens in a few suburban locations, the coldest conditions so far this season. After an unusually cold day on Friday, the Arctic cold air mass will begin to lift out by the early part of the weekend at which time plenty of moisture will be pushing in this direction from the Gulf of Mexico region. While the weekend event is likely to be primarily in the form of rain, there can be enough lingering cold air at the onset for sleet and/or freezing rain in some spots.

7:00 AM | **One of the coldest Thanksgiving Days ever in much of the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic**

Paul Dorian

The big story of the week around here will be the Arctic blast that arrives later today and it will result in one of the coldest Thanksgiving Days ever for much of the Mid-Atlantic region and Northeast US. Temperatures late night should drop to near the 20 degree mark and then struggle on Thursday to reach the mid-to-upper 20’s for highs. The coldest Thanksgiving Day on record in the Philly record books took place in 1901 when the high was just 27 degrees – record is certainly in jeopardy on Thursday. The lows on Thursday night will be in the middle teens in many suburban locations, the coldest conditions so far this season. After an unusually cold day on Friday, the Arctic cold air mass will begin to lift out by the early part of the weekend at which time plenty of moisture will be pushing in this direction from the Gulf of Mexico region.

7:00 AM | **Record-breaking cold possible for Thanksgiving Day**

Paul Dorian

The big story of the week around here will be the Arctic blast that arrives later today and it will result in one of the coldest Thanksgiving Days ever for much of the Mid-Atlantic region and Northeast US. Temperatures late night should drop to near the 20 degree mark and then struggle on Thursday to reach the mid-to-upper 20’s for highs. New York City has had only three Thanksgivings dating to 1870 when the high temperature failed to rise out of the 20’s, according to National Weather Service statistics with the coldest featuring a high of 26 degrees on Nov. 28, 1901. The lows on Thursday night will be in the mid-to-upper teens in many suburban locations, the coldest conditions so far this season. After an unusually cold day on Friday, the Arctic cold air mass will begin to lift out by the early part of the weekend at which time plenty of moisture will be pushing in this direction from the Gulf of Mexico region.

7:00 AM | A bit on the cool side next few days, but windy and warmer this weekend

Paul Dorian

Cooler air pushed into the region on Tuesday following a frontal passage and it’ll still a bit on the cool side for the next few days with only limited chances for shower activity. By the weekend, winds feature more of a southerly component and temperatures will climb back towards the 80 degree mark for afternoon highs. Normal high temperatures in Melbourne this time of year are in the upper 70’s.

7:00 AM | *Colder-than-normal for much of the week*

Paul Dorian

Following a frontal passage, cooler air will move into the region today as high pressure builds to the east from the central Plains. High pressure should remain in control for the next couple of days as well, but we’ll stay on the cool side of normal including for Turkey Day.

7:00 AM | **Arctic blast arrives tomorrow night...Thanksgiving Day to be one of the coldest ever**

Paul Dorian

The big story of the week will be the Arctic blast that arrives late tomorrow and it should result in one of the coldest Thanksgiving Days ever for much of the Mid-Atlantic region and Northeast US. Temperatures tomorrow night should drop to mid 20’s for overnight lows and then will struggle on Thursday to reach the freezing mark. The last Thanksgiving Day in Washington, DC with highs in the 30’s was 18 years ago on November 23, 2000 when the temp only reached 38.

7:00 AM | A bit cooler for Turkey Day with a slight chance of showers

Paul Dorian

A weak frontal system will push through the peninsula today, but the shower threat will be rather limited as moisture levels are not that high and there is little upper air support. Any cool down from the frontal passage will be short-lived as low-level winds become more southeasterly as the week progresses. Normal high temperatures in Melbourne this time of year are in the upper 70’s.
