From a national perspective, it really doesn’t look like a bad day of travel. Much of the country will be dry during the day with only isolated rain and snow showers along the Rocky Mountains, Arizona, the Dakotas, Minnesota and Texas. The evening hours will see scattered showers and storms along the cold front from Michigan to New Mexico, but with no flooding and severe storms forecast, travel delays are not expected to be widespread.

Thusday: There will be a remnant of rain during the morning and early afternoon in Illinois Indiana, but it looks like much of the day will be dry in the Midwest. Thanks to the cold front, Thanksgiving feels like our coldest day of the holiday weekend globally. High temperatures will only be in the 30s in most places. Take into account the gusts of wind which will still be around 25mph and the temperatures felt will struggle to come out of the 20s. The winds will subside after sunset, but it will be a cold night with low temperatures around 20 degrees in a lot of places. If you’re planning to line up for Black Friday, bundle up!
