Thanksgiving weather — what to expect

The Thanksgiving holiday will see relatively quiet weather conditions across the country.

Fox News' Adam Klotz reported Thursday that the largest weather system on Turkey Day is a cold front that will bring scattered thunderstorms and rain to the East Coast.

That front is expected to clear out of the Mid-Atlantic and southeast by midday and out of New England by later in the day, with above-average temperatures forecast east of the Colorado Rockies.

Showers are also expected along the western and central Gulf Coast in the afternoon.

To the West, a storm system producing gusting winds have forced California and Nevada to issue red flag warnings and increase firefighter staffing. 

That same system will also produce rain and higher elevations will see mountain snow.
