Although it will be mainly dry across the country, cold and wind will be a challenge for some of the biggest Thanksgiving Day parades.
The most notable parade is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in the heart of New York City.
Following some tricky traveling weather on Wednesday, Thursday will be dry with sunshine.
Thanksgiving is anticipated as a blustery day for The Big Apple. Northwest winds will be howling between 15 and 30 mph. There could be gusts to 40 mph, which may pose issues for floats and balloons.
These winds will make it feel even colder than the afternoon high in the lower 30s. Parade-time temperatures will be around 30 degrees, but AccuWeather RealFeels® will likely be near 10 F.
Not only will the winds make it feel colder, but they could also cause problems for the large floats and those helping to carry balloons.
Also in the I-95 corridor, the 6ABC Dunkin' Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade in Philadelphia will be fighting similar wind gusts.
In the Midwest, the America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit and the McDonald's Thanksgiving Day Parade in Chicago will both be battling the cold. Temperatures will be in the mid-20s for the morning, rising to the lower 30s in the afternoon.
However, wind speeds are expected to be at or below 10 mph, so it will not feel quite as cold as the parades in the Northeast.
