Post-Thanksgiving weather shaping up to be soggy in the Northeast

Less than a week after record-setting low temperatures and a blockbuster lake-effect snowstorm made it feel like the middle of winter in parts of the Midwest and Northeast, rain and milder air are forecast for travelers in these regions around Thanksgiving.

According to AccuWeather forecasters, the wettest day for many will be this Friday, a traditionally busy day for holiday shopping.

The storm responsible for this unsettled weather will be a quick-moving system that will swoop down from Canada and reach the Midwest on Thanksgiving Day. Meteorologists say these fronts typically can pick up some extra moisture as they move into the Northeast, but that won’t necessarily be the case this time, as the heaviest moisture will remain in the Southeast and instead will get absorbed by a separate storm that will develop into the weekend.
