An active weather pattern is in place across the eastern U.S. for the middle of the week. For the East coast, a developing nor’easter will cause havoc for Thanksgiving travelers from the Carolinas to New England. This feature is a wave of low pressure that developed along a cold front over the Gulf of Mexico, and is lifting northeastward. Although the strongest winds will likely remain offshore, widespread precipitation is expected from Florida to Maine. Rain is expected for coastal areas, and significant snow from the central Appalachians to into inland parts of the Northeast U.S., with the greatest snowfall expected for the higher elevations of New England.
