HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Where you plan to travel this Thanksgiving will be the determining factor in whether or not you'll have a cold or warm Thanksgiving. Temperatures in the southeast are expected to range from the mid-60s into the low 70s. Up the east coast temperatures get colder the closer you get to the Canadian border. 

The midwest looks to be the coldest portion of the United States on Thanksgiving with temperatures ranging from the 30s to the 50s in Ohio and Indiana. Across the western half of the United States, we get about what one would expect. Warmer air along the west coast, and much cooler across the rocky Mountains. Denver and Salt Lake, however, actually don't look that bad in the temperature department on Thanksgiving.

Widespread travel issues won't be the case this Wednesday, with high pressure controlling the weather for much of the country. Things will begin to change as we approach Thanksgiving as showers and storms develop across Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas. 

 we take things into a more regional view we can see the rain in those just mentioned areas Thursday afternoon. This activity spreads into Mississippi late Thursday afternoon before moving into Alabama and Georgia Thursday evening into the overnight. The weekend will likely be wet for some in the southeast as rain looks to be with us potentially into Sunday.
