The record high in Boston on Thanksgiving is 24 degrees and the low is 11 degrees.

A Cold Emergency Alert will provide additional services and support to protect people from life-threatening illnesses and injuries associated with severe cold weather.

"It's going to be brutal out there", said Accuweather senior meteorologist Dave Dombek.

Morning lows will start in the mid-20s, with highs reaching the low 40s.

News reports in NY indicate that the record-breaking cold is expected to be accompanied by winds of 22 miles per hour - gusting to 34 miles per hour, which could force balloons to be grounded for the famous Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The advisory will be in effect from 4 a.m.to 10 a.m. for parts of Franklin County, Hampshire County, and Hampden County, where wind chill values could drop to as low as 15 below zero.

On Thanksgiving Day, temperatures will have a high of 39 degrees and a low of 37, the NWS said.
