NEW YORK - Although it will be mainly dry across the country, cold and wind will challenge those attending some of the biggest Thanksgiving Day parades.

The most notable parade is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade but a blustery day is anticipated for the Big Apple.

Northwest winds will be howling between 15 and 30 mph. There could be gusts to 40 mph.

These winds will make it feel even colder than the afternoon high in the lower 30s.

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.
