Nor'easter Could Mess With Thanksgiving Week Travel
Forecast indicates that a potential nor'easter is forming up; it could scramble Thanksgiving week airline travel in particular.
Another nor’easter could scramble airline travel during Thanksgiving week, according to accuweather.com.
A nor'easter may form over the western Atlantic by Sunday, sending rain and wind into parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast through at least the middle of the week, according to the private meteorological company.
"How close to the coast the storm tracks will determine how unsettled the weather gets in the I-95 corridor to the Appalachians," said accuweather.com senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
There is potential that the nor'easter could strengthen and move farther inland into New England at midweek. In this scenario, there is some potential for a wintry mix or snow over the mountains of northern New England.
Thanksgiving week is always one of the heaviest travel times of the year, and airline passengers from Boston to New York City may be dealing with delays from rain, low clouds and wind. These delays could in turn cause ripple-effect problems.
Motorists might also meet slow travel in both wet weather closer to the coast and any slippery roads resulting from wintry weather across the interior.
