Will Nor'easter Impact Thanksgiving Travel?

Forecasters say a new storm could make for messy holiday travel

Just as the northeast begins to breathe easier after the battering it received from Hurricane Sandy and a destructive nor'easter, weather forecasters are delivering more bad news: A possible storm may strike the region early next week, potentially wreaking havoc on Thanksgiving travel plans.

A nor'easter could form over the western Atlantic Ocean, bringing heavy rains and wind across parts of the region at the beginning of the week, according to AccuWeather.com. If the storm moves inland over New England, it could also bring snow or a wintry mix to that region, say AccuWeather forecasters.

Though the storm isn't expected to be as severe as last week's nor'easter, stormy conditions could affect travel along the I-95 corridor, as well as flight cause delays.

Still, the Northeast isn't the only region that may experience holiday travel woes. According to AccuWeather:

A potent storm from the Pacific threatens to bring heavy rain, mountain snow and locally gusty wind to the Northwest and northern California early next week. The rain could slow travel along the I-5 corridor from Seattle to Portland and Medford, Ore. San Francisco may also get damp for a time, causing some slower holiday travel.
