Huge swaths of the United States are bracing for an arctic blast in the coming days; bringing record cold daily temperatures this early in the season and possible snowstorms for New York City ahead of Thanksgiving.
“This is not the norm by any means,” warned Accuweather senior meteorologist Tom Kines. “This is about as cold as it gets for this time of year.”
“Tomorrow’s one of those days where you dress for the evening hours, not the morning hours,” Kines added. “Don’t be fooled. It’s not out of the question that before the precipitation ends, it will end as a little bit of snow. It won’t accumulate, but it will be a signal that this next air mass that comes in means business.”
“Tuesday night, temperatures in the city could dip into the low 20s — potentially breaking a record low of 22 set on that day in 1873,” reports the New York Post.

“148 daily record lows are currently forecast to be broken, tied, or come within 1 degree between Tuesday and Thursday this week,” warned the National Weather Service.
“You throw in the wind and it’s going to feel like the teens out there,” Kines said.
