JULIA'S TRAVEL FORECAST: Sunny in the South - WLBT.com - Jackson, MS


It's one of the busiest travel days of the year! Fortunately the weather will NOT impact our travel plans regionally in the south. Any travel from Texas to Georgia and all of the states in between will feature plenty of sunshine and pleasant temperatures. For those staying within the state of Mississippi, expect highs to reach the mid 60s today.

For those planning on heading up the eastern seaboard, dicey weather is in store. The Carolinas, eastern Virginia, and the Delmarva peninsula are all expecting rain through the first half of the day. Mountainous regions farther inland are getting hit with a wintry mix and snow; inland regions of Virginia and the hills in West Virginia could receive as much as 6 inches of wet snow.

The farther northeast you head, the greater the risk for inland snow. Major cities that are at risk for flight delays and cancellations include Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston, where several inches of snow are expected. Fortunately, most of these major cities will be clear of falling snow by Thanksgiving Day.

Another area of the country to keep an eye on is the Midwest. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, and extreme Northeast Missouri could all receive a few inches of snow through the course of the day. Some of that wet snow could extend toward western Kentucky and central Tennessee this evening, but rain looks more likely. Nashville will see some rain showers, and Memphis area may receive a spotty shower or two as well.

Extreme northern states (Montana, northern Washington, and northern Idaho) will all see a few inches of snowfall today as well.
