Thanksgiving is going to feel more like Christmas this year, according to the frigid forecast from the National Weather Service.

The temperature will dip into the teens on Wednesday night, Nov. 21, 2018, and won’t top 25 degrees on Thanksgiving in Morristown. Overnight the mercury will slide down to around 12 degrees, barely cracking the freezing mark on Friday, Nov.23, the agency predicts.

Morristown’s Fire House at 161 Speedwell Ave. will double as a warming center, Mayor Tim Dougherty’s office announced. Hours:

Wednesday:  6 pm through Thursday, 8 am
Thursday:  6 pm through Friday, 8 am
Friday, pm through Saturday, 8 am.

“If possible, stay indoors and when venturing outside, dress appropriately,” the Mayor’s office stated.
