National Thanksgiving travel forecast

It’s a tale of 2 halves of the U.S. today.

The East half is fine, no travel woes due to weather today or tomorrow.

But out West, more rain, snow, and wind.  In the Pacific Northwest there are winter weather advisories up for Washington & Oregon. They continue down into the California Sierras and east into Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. Wind warnings and advisories for the mountains too. Same as the last 2 days.  

In the middle of the country, FOG is the big travel problem for today. There are dense fog advisories from Missouri to Wisconsin and Michigan… including St. Louis, Chicago, Indy & Milwaukee. Expect delays this morning for air travelers there.

Things will dry out there tomorrow. In fact the entire country looks dry for Thanksgiving, except the upper Midwest and the Mississippi valley late in the day.  

That's a great forecast for me! I'm headed up to New York to report from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade just like last year!

I was there just a few weeks ago covering Superstorm Sandy.  There was no power and the streets of Hoboken were flooded out. The National Guard was making rescues. Now things are coming back together a little bit for the region, and I'm interested in seeing the progress made in the last 3 weeks with the cleanup.
