Rockies and Midwest Brace for Two Feet of Snow, Challenging Road Conditions Ahead

According to source, as millions of Americans conclude their Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a mixed weather forecast introduces potential travel hazards, with clear skies dominating most areas but predictions of two feet of snow in the Rockies and Midwest.

The Transportation Security Administration anticipates the Sunday after Thanksgiving to be its busiest travel day ever, exceeding previous records and contributing to an already bustling holiday season. However, the National Weather Service warns of a winter storm affecting western Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming, with the potential for two feet of snow accumulation in the Midwest, creating challenging road conditions.

While skies remain mostly sunny on the East Coast, including California, the Midwest braces for snowy weather, particularly in Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, and Michigan, where icy road conditions may arise due to two feet of snow. AAA estimates that over 49 million drivers will hit the roads during the Thanksgiving holiday, marking a 1.7% increase from the previous year.
