- Weather-related travel disruptions will be limited this weekend into early next week.
- A more active pattern may develop midweek which could impact holiday plans.
Weather-related travel delays will not be widespread this weekend into early next week, but that will likely change closer to Thanksgiving.
Here is a day-by-day look at what to expect through Thanksgiving.
Weather-related travel delays are not expected for most of the Lower 48 on Monday and temperatures will start to moderate for many. Conditions will also improve for most of the eastern Great Lakes as lake-effect snow dwindles.
However, rain could impact travel once again for parts of Florida, Louisiana and Texas.
Travel delays could result from wet weather will begin to move into the Pacific Northwest ahead of a low pressure system.
A system in the Pacific Northwest will bring rain and mountain snow there, which could slow travel.
Showers are possible across parts of the Southeast on Tuesday, which could also lead to some travel delays.
Dry conditions are anticipated from the Northeast through the Midwest into the Southwest once again.
Weather-related travel delays on one of the busiest travel days of the year are most likely in portions of the Southeast where rain will persist and Northern Rockies where some snow is expected.
Generally dry conditions are expected elsewhere along with temperatures close to average.
A developing system will spread wet weather across the South Wednesday night. If you’re traveling in those areas, it may be better to travel earlier in the day.
Details will likely change, but parts of the Midwest could see some rain or snow on Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving night.
A wet Thanksgiving is also likely for much of the South and portions of the Pacific Northwest. Some thunderstorms are possible closer to the Gulf Coast.
Areas from California into much of the Plains currently have the best chance of a dry Thanksgiving. Warmer than average conditions will be possible along the West Coast.
