Prepare for the Worst: Severe Weather Threatens Thanksgiving Travel
Get ready for severe weather across the United States this Thanksgiving, making it the worst day of the week for airport delays and road conditions.
After drenching the West Coast, a massive storm is making its way to the East Coast, with heavy rain, strong winds, and snow expected in major travel hubs like Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington D.C., and New York City this week.
The storm is set to hit Chicago on Monday night, followed by Atlanta and Charlotte early Tuesday, then moving to Washington, D.C., and New York City later in the day.
Heaviest rain is expected to hit the Interstate 95 travel corridor starting Tuesday night, potentially leading to flash flooding and extremely dangerous road conditions.
Atlanta and Charlotte are at risk of damaging winds, causing almost certain airport delays.
A few tornadoes are possible in areas of the South, while snowfall is expected in northern New England.
Temperatures are forecasted to plummet just in time for Thanksgiving, making it a chilly holiday weekend across the country.
