Traveling for Thanksgiving? You might want to head out earlier than planned
We don’t want anyone sulking as one of the busiest holidays of the year approaches but Thanksgiving isn’t looking good with the not-so-promising weather forecasts.
FOX Forecast Center is eyeing some storms on both coasts by the end of the week—perhaps ordering that Thanksgiving pizza isn’t so bad after all—so if you don’t want to get stuck in airports waiting for delayed flights, you might want to reconsider your flight plans.
But there is a silver lining. FOX Weather meteorologist Jane Minor confirmed it’s “too soon to put any number on it, but just be aware that we might see a little bit of an active pattern.”
Clearer details of the forecast come as the travel period nears. But for the time being, a jet stream is heading south towards the end of the week, which could cause storms on both coasts.
In this video, we are talking about how around Thanksgiving, a major weather pattern change will set the stage for recurring storms across the US.

Snow might arrive across the north while the south can expect rain between Nov. 16 and 19. In short, potential travel delays on the way. But there’s always a Costco Thanksgiving kit available if you’ll have a shorter time to prepare.

Approaching Thanksgiving, the weather doesn’t look friendly as the Climate Prediction Center forecasted an above-average temperature and precipitation on the East Coast—though that Thanksgiving parade would look good in sunny weather.
Meanwhile, if you’re heading west, a cup of pumpkin spiced latte would be perfect as temperatures are expected to drop.

Furthermore, a possible stronger storm could also develop in the western US during Thanksgiving week, according to Fox Forecast Center, bringing in heavy snow, rains, and winds in the region.
Whichever of the two situations you’ll find yourself in, we’re still crossing our fingers for good weather overall.
