Thousands of travelers can expect to hit bad weather and hazardous road conditions today as they embark on long journeys to see loved ones over Thanksgiving.
“Unfortunately, it won’t be a nice day for a drive, no matter where you’re headed. In most directions surrounding Hampton Roads, the picture isn’t pretty,” stated the Virginian-Pilot.
That’s due to a massive snowstorm barreling up from the West that’s making its way to the Northeast and New England, where it’s dumping snow and rain.
If you are heading north dress up warm and remember your ice scraper and snow shovel. Those traveling west may face icy roads. It will even be cold if you are driving south – unless you are flying to South America.
John Cooper and Jim Hurley wish you a happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah
Temperatures in Hampton Roads are likely to fall to the 20s overnight and roads will remain slippery and wet. Add to that the congestion that’s likely to ensure as people hit the roads from Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach, and there’s some potential for misery. Remember to set out early if you can, always know where you are going and pack that most important commodity – patience.
Thanksgiving is one of the most dangerous holidays of the year. Never drink and drive and always drive with caution.
