New Year’s Eve is often known for the numbers of parties and celebrations that take place to culminate the year’s end and a new beginning. On television, there are a couple of key programs where musical guests perform and hosts interact with fans in anticipation of the New Year.
This year is no different as the blonde funny gal, Jenny McCarthy is set to step back into the co-hosting role alongside one of entertainment’s busiest men, Ryan Seacrest for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve.
But this year will be a bit different as most of the country is experiencing a frigid cold front that will have New York in low single digits. McCarthy posted a video that showed a rehearsal which took place just yesterday and the bone-numbing cold was hard to overlook.
While winter in New York is typically anything but warm, much warmer temperatures are usually in the forecast during New Years. McCarthy admits that she’s freaking out about the prospect of it being that cold while the show is being taped live and broadcasted to millions.
The weather forecast states that the temperature around midnight on New Year’s Eve will be around 11 degrees. But that’s before factoring in windchill which will actually make it feel around minus 4 degrees which sounds like bottled hypothermia. If it does reach that temperature, it would tie for the second coldest New Year’s Eve on record in the city as the other took place in 1962.
McCarthy does have a few tricks for staying as warm as possible and not literally freezing from the inside out in such conditions. She makes sure she triple layers her clothing and finding just the right coat that will actually fit over all those layers. It’s a real science to adequately and effectively dress for these type of temperatures.
One thing that many will be tuning in to witness is megastar singer Mariah Carey coming back to perform after last year’s embarrassing blunder. She’s set to redeem herself after a performance that left many absolutely confused and viewers at home cringing.
Tune in to the show tonight at 8 p.m EST to catch all the night’s happenings.
