    Northwest Turns Stormy for Thanksgiving Travel

    Tame weather through the end of this week will come to a quick end this weekend as a parade of storms marches into the Pacific Northwest.

    Rounds of rain, heavy mountain snow and strong coastal winds will begin during the morning hours on Saturday from northern California to Washington.

    The stormy weather will continue, on and off, through the weekend into the first part of next week.

    This unsettled weather is expected to have major impacts on holiday travel plans, not only on roadways, but in the air as well.


    Those expecting to fly to or from airports across cities like Portland, Seattle, Medford and Eureka will need to pay close attention to the weather over the upcoming days.

    Thanksgiving week is typically the busiest week to travel all year, and combine that with days upon days of low clouds and heavy rain, and one ends up with a recipe for significant delays at the very least.

    Be sure to keep checking back with AccuWeather.com for the latest information on this potential holiday travel nightmare.
