Thanksgiving Travel Nightmares in Northeast, Northwest


A nightmare awaits those hitting the road or taking to the skies to reach Thanksgiving Day destinations today in part of the Northeast and the Northwest.

Soaking rain, low clouds and gusty winds will be the predominant culprits behind travel woes within these two regions today. However for some, snow is also to blame.

Most travelers would gladly take rain over snow, but even wet weather can bring trouble when there is a high volume of vehicles.

"Stopping distance greatly increases on wet roadways, and poor visibility from heavy rain, fog and blowing spray increases reaction time," warned Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
