The Weather isn't done with you turkeys yet: Exactly one week after blasting us with a snow-ice storm of unexpectedly aggressive proportions, it is reportedly cooking up a cold front to disrupt Thanksgiving Day.

If you must waddle outdoors to collect last-minute supplies, or if you must make your way to a friend/family member/acquaintance's holiday gathering, be sure to bundle yourself and your casseroles, because temps are currently projected to top out at 29 degrees. And! Lows could sink as low as 22, making this among the coldest Thanksgivings EVER.

Given that just last week I told you everything would almost certainly be fine w/r/t that forecasted inch of snow—ha ha remember that?!?!—and given that the situation was the opposite of fine, I feel obligated to state right upfront that when it comes to The Weather, zero guarantees can be made, neither by me nor by real meteorologists. Still, I believe it prudent to prepare for the worst, which currently looks like a cold snap engineered to plunge you and your festive fowl into the deepest depths of a city-sized freezer chest.

According to the National Weather Service, we owe this unfortunate development to a "frontal system" sweeping in from the West, gathering strength as it barrels across the Great Plains and into the Midwest. By the time it hits the East Coast, the air and—oh God, I'm so sorry, the WIND—will be very chill indeed. AccuWeather suggests the low could even drop to 21 degrees, but with unpleasant gusts bullying you at 22 mph, you might feel as though a more realistic temp estimate hovers between 19 and 21 degrees. FYI, that's significantly colder than the inside of a meat locker. Even refrigerated beef will be warmer than you!

But, on the bright side, I do not currently see winter storms on the horizon: Your holiday should hold clear skies and sun that will do little to save you from the tooth-rattling ice blast.

As the NWS points out, Thursday's high will not be the worst on record: The dubious honor of lowest-ever New York temps goes to the late 1800s, which saw its coldest Thanksgiving in 1871 and its coldest November 22 in 1880, at 22 and 23 degrees respectively. However, this might be the frigid-est Thanksgiving the Northeast as a whole has seen since 1996, and the most Arctic turkey day climate Bean Town has seen since 1901.

So, to sum up, the outdoors will be a frozen hell on this very busy travel holiday, but hey things could always be worse! You could be in Boston!
