The day of thanksgiving began, as every year, with the parade in Manhattan with balloons of various parsonages, including snoopy in an astronaut version.
High winds have been blowing through New York City, and the balloons generally aren’t supposed to be flown when sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city regulations.
Sustained wind speed in New York is expected to be around 20 mph, and gusts could reach around 40 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
But this year the bad weather seems to ruin Thanksgiving weekend.
In fact, the deep oceanic depression arriving on the western United States will move right from next Thursday on the central US areas, shifting to the north-eastern areas by Monday, ruining the long weekend practically on almost all the US territory.
Day off for Wall Street, which today will be closed for the national Thanksgiving holiday. Trading will resume tomorrow with a reduced timetable. The New York Stock Exchange, Friday, November 29, 2019, will end the session at 1 pm local time (6 pm in England) instead of at the usual time of 4 pm (9 pm in England).
