US Thanksgiving travel weather forecast: Big storms to create big trouble from coast to coast
Thanksgiving weather forecast: Big storm could disrupt travel in central U.S.
A sprawling storm in the central U.S. could wreak travel havoc in the days before Thanksgiving: Snow, rain and even thunderstorms are possible.On Tuesday and into Wednesday, there is the potential for heavy snow and winterlike travel conditions with substantial delays to spread from eastern Colorado and northeastern New Mexico to parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan as Thanksgiving travel surges, AccuWeather said.
Thanksgiving travel troubles are likely this week as two storms track across the nation, bringing a miserable mix of rain, snow and wind from coast to coast.
"We've got a very active pattern this week, with the potential for some travel disruptions," National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Oravec said.
The first storm will dump heavy snow, as much as 6-12 inches, across portions of the western and central USA on Tuesday and into Wednesday, Oravec said.
Thanksgiving weather: Three big storms and record travel numbers this week
Weather will bring more stress this holiday with the record number of travelers.One storm will lash the East and will affect travel through Sunday, another one will batter the Midwest on Tuesday and a third one will move through the West on Wednesday.
Wind-driven snow will spread from Colorado to Michigan from Tuesday into Tuesday night, AccuWeather meteorologist Paul Walker said. Low visibility and slick roads will create dangerous travel conditions in these areas, according to the Weather Channel.
How to navigate the weather:
Denver could see more than a foot of snow Tuesday, the weather service said, potentially wreaking havoc for road and air travelers.
Turbulent weather pattern to bring 2 major storms this holiday week
A turbulent weather pattern is about to take shape over the U.S. just as we head into the Holiday Week with 2 high impact storms that will bring dangerous weather. A storm will begin to organize and deepen in the Rockies late Monday. The storm then moves eastward on Tuesday into the north central plains and into the upper Midwest on Wednesday.
Blizzard conditions will be possible from far northeastern Colorado through central Nebraska, AccuWeather predicted, because of the strong winds that accompany the storm.

The same storm will bring rain and thunderstorms from the Great Lakes states to the Gulf Coast on Tuesday. Roadways will be soaked from Ohio to Louisiana, as opposed to slippery and snow-covered, and drivers should expect disruptions through these states, AccuWeather said.
After the storm moves through the East late Wednesday, howling winds will be the main issue across portions of the Midwest and Northeast into Thanksgiving Day. This could cause problems for the balloons at Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City.
Thanksgiving weather: It's the busiest travel week of the year, and 20 million people face brutal conditions
Just in time for Thanksgiving, travelers will get walloped by several storms across the country. From snow in SoCal to wicked winds in the Northeast, here's what you need to know:From California to Michigan, 20 million people are under winter weather advisories, watches or warnings, CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen said. And we're still 26 days from start of winter.
Another strong storm will roar ashore into the West Coast Tuesday and Wednesday, Oravec said. Hurricane-force wind gusts will batter the coasts of Oregon and Northern California.
This storm threatens to bring rain to much of California, including San Francisco and Sacramento, places that were largely spared by last week's rain.
Air- and road-travel delays are possible in San Francisco and Los Angeles, the Weather Channel predicted. Dangerous driving conditions could develop as snow falls from California's Sierra Nevada into the Rockies.
55 million will clog roads, airports:
Heavy mountain snow will be measured in feet in the Sierra, according to AccuWeather.
The storm will bring snow to portions of Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Arizona on Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day.
The storm is expected to move east during the final days of November and cause still more travel disruptions for those in the Plains and East heading home after the Thanksgiving holiday, AccuWeather said.
