With a high temperature of 60°F in Central Park, the Thanksgiving holiday was unusually warm here in New York City this year. However, it was not a record breaker. That honor belongs to Thanksgiving Day 1925 when the temperature reached 72°F. That said, it was a far cry from the chilly high of 38°F that we experienced last year on Turkey Day. Our normal high for this time of year is 50°F.
Below is a chart based on NWS data listing the top ten warmest and coldest Thanksgiving Days in NYC history. Happy Thanksgiving!
