Heading somewhere special for Thanksgiving this year? Check out what the weather will be where you're going.

Hard to believe the holiday's are here!  With Thanksgiving now less than a week away, many people are getting ready for good food and time with family and friends.  The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year.  Are you planning on traveling?  Well, fortunately, the weather for Wednesday (the day before Thanksgiving) will be relatively quiet across the lower 48.  Here's an overall view of what to expect.

The areas to watch for delayed or slow travel will be the Pacific Northwest.  A strong area of low pressure will develop and bring rain and wind to Washington, Oregon, Northern California, and Northern Idaho.

A large area of high pressure will dominate the midsection of the country which will help prevent any large areas of unsettled weather. The Plains will be pleasant and dry.  The East coast, with the exception of a few showers along the Southeast coast, will be dry with seasonable temperatures.

We'll continue to update this forecast, as the holiday gets closer.  Safe travels!
