    Showery Northwest Could Have Weekend Travel Delays

    Following one of the weakest travel days of the year, Black Friday, the weekend after Thanksgiving is notorious for being some of the busiest travel days of the year.

    Continuing the trend of wet weather in the Northwest, rain and snow showers could make traveling home after the Thanksgiving holiday a little complicated.

    Normally busy cities, like Portland, Ore., and Seattle, Wash., will have rain with a cold front pushing south and east through the area on Saturday.

    Sunday will be a much better travel day for these states with clouds and some sunshine.

    Much of Idaho and Montana will have wet weather both days this weekend. Much of the precipitation will start out as rain on Saturday, changing over to snow on Saturday night.

    While the cold front will be out over the Plains by Sunday, a weak low pressure will linger over the northern Rockies, keeping snow showers around in the colder air.

    Snow showers are also expected to spread into Wyoming and South Dakota on Sunday.

    Many other locations in the West will be quiet for the weekend, including major traveling hubs like San Francisco; Phoenix, Ariz.; and Denver, Colo. These places are forecast to be dry with at least some sunshine.

    Another major city, Los Angeles, along with other coastal Southern California cities will need to look out for morning fog that could cause travel complications and delays this weekend.
