A storm system could slow down your plans this Thanksgiving if you’re one of the 55 million people traveling for the holiday.
The stubborn system has been present off the Pacific coast for a few days, but now, some of that DNA is expected to move eastward across the Lower 48 during the first half of the upcoming holiday week as a developing storm.
Highlights of weather events before Thanksgiving:
- The coasts could feature some wet weather this weekend. Both Interstate 95 and 5 corridors may be affected by rain. The weather is expected to be more stable on Sunday in both locations. If you want to go skiing in the Green or White Mountains or in the Sierra, this weather could bring fresh snow for some Sundays on the slopes.
- The central and eastern United States could see widespread rain starting Monday and continuing in the east through Wednesday.
- Some heavy rain is possible in the mid-Atlantic or Northeast on Wednesday.
- Cold air is likely to reach the eastern two-thirds of the country on Wednesday and on Thanksgiving. Get firewood for a warmer holiday.
These details will likely change as Thanksgiving approaches, so check back with us for the latest news.
