    Thanksgiving week storm threatens holiday travel: Latest AccuWeather NYC weather forecast

    NEW YORK (WABC) — Those hitting the roads, rails, or skies for Thanksgiving could have a difficult journey during the traditionally busiest pre-holiday travel days.

    A major storm will cross the country beginning on the west coast this weekend and heading into the Plains and Gulf states by Sunday and Monday and travel into the Northeast Tuesday into Wednesday.

    Lee Goldberg has the latest forecast.

    The New York City and Tri-State area will start off the week quiet on Monday, but we have an AccuWeather Alert for Tuesday into Wednesday, when millions of people are likely to be traveling.

    The storm will spread heavy rain along the Interstate 95 corridor with more than two inches of rain possible in parts of the Tri-State area.

    Parts of northern New England may see some snow.

    The rain should wrap up in our area Wednesday afternoon as gusty wind picks up.

    Morgan Norwood has the latest on holiday travel in the Tri-State area.

    If you are traveling upstate, the Buffalo area could see some significant lake effect snows Wednesday into Thursday. If bands of heavier snow develop, they can also have gusty winds associated with them and even localized near blizzard conditions.

    This cross-country storm comes as the Transportation Security Administration said it expects its busiest holiday season ever.

    The busiest and most expensive days to fly before Thanksgiving will be Tuesday and Wednesday according to AAA. The busiest day to drive is Wednesday.

    The good news: Thanksgiving should be dry in the New York City area, but chilly. Post-Thanksgiving travel the following weekend should be much quieter.
