The storm began to take shape Monday,in while generating heavy rain across the Mid-South and Tennessee Valley.
Travelers will be most affected by this storm on Tuesday and Tuesday night when it delivers a soaking rain in drought-plagued areas of the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic, thunderstorms in the Southeast and snow in the interior Northeast.
On Wednesday, the focus of the worst weather will shift to New England, where rain and mountain snow could interfere with travel plans. Some downpours are also possible along the Southeast coast and through Florida.
Once Thanksgiving arrives, the weather should settle in most of the country, except for the northern Rockies and adjacent High Plains. There, a rather significant snowstorm, supported by a blast of cold air, is shaping up.
Heading into the weekend, odds of another disruptive storm in the East have diminished compared to a few days ago, but some rain is possible along the northern Gulf Coast and Florida.
Here’s a forecast for 10 cities that will be affected by storminess during the Thanksgiving travel period:
