Published

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Friday night is the end of one year, and Saturday morning is the start of the next. New Year’s Eve is full of special menus at area restaurants, local bands playing the year away, and even some Adirondack Thunder hockey at Cool Insuring Arena, breaking the ice on 2022.

On the weather forecast, it’s a New Year’s that forgets what season we’re in. Friday is set for a daytime high of 47, dipping down to 42 at midnight when the ball drops. On Saturday, things get warmer still with a rainy 51 high.
