Forecasters: Nor'easter could disrupt Thanksgiving travel
Forecasters are warning of a potential nor'easter that threatens to cause havoc for Thanksgiving travelers.
The National Weather Service says a nor'easter is possible from late Tuesday through Thanksgiving day, with stormy weather most likely to hit in the mid-Atlantic from early Wednesday through early Thursday.
The storm could bring strong winds and heavy rain to much of region, with snow possible, especially in higher-elevation areas in eastern Pennsylvania and northwest New Jersey.
Those traveling for the holiday could face delays on the road and at airports and train stations.
"Travel conditions will deteriorate late Tuesday night as strong onshore winds and rain move into the region," a briefing from the weather service's Mount Holly office says. "These conditions will persist through Wednesday before gradually improving Thanksgiving morning."
Forecasters say it's still too early to tell exactly how much precipitation, or what type, to expect in specific areas.
At this point, forecasts say the Interstate 95 corridor in the mid-Atlantic is more likely to see a "chilly rain," instead of snow, according to AccuWeather.
