New York City faces coldest Thanksgiving since 1901 after earliest 6″+ snowfall on record!

The recent 6.4 inch snowfall which fell on NYC’s Central Park not only was the city’s 2nd snowiest November day on record but it was the earliest 6+ inch snowstorm on record. Only 1882 saw more snow on a single November day and that was 15 days later.

While the snow departs, so a quite exceptional cold air mass (for time of year) drops out of Canada and descends over the Northeast just in time for Thanksgiving on Thursday. How cold? Well we could see highs in the mid 20s, lows in the upper teens for Central Park. This could be the coldest Thanksgiving since 1901.

Beneath the core of this super cold air, temps in recent mornings dipped close to -40C/F over northern Manitoba, quite exceptional for this early.
