A Cool 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Slightly cooler than normal temperatures will be felt for spectators of the 90th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday morning in New York. Morning readings are likely to be near 40 degrees when the first floats start venturing down the streets of Manhattan. A weak front to the west may create isolated showers and areas of drizzle. Wind speeds will be under 10 mph, so no issues are expected for the balloons.
