You might need to keep your umbrella handy on the big holiday travel day Wednesday, and you’ll definitely need your winter coat on Thanksgiving.
Macy’s parade forecastIf the current forecast holds up, it bodes well for the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City in terms of wind and precipitation.
Travel trouble spotsOne dark spot on the holiday forecast: Wednesday could be a wet travel day in New Jersey, but most of the rain should fall in the morning.
That could slow some holiday travel traffic early Wednesday, but the late afternoon and evening should remain dry.

Thanksgiving travel weather across Great Lakes region
With lots of cars on the roads and planes in the air, it looks like the weather will mostly cooperate with Thanksgiving travelers in the Great Lakes region.
The travel period from Wednesday through Friday won’t have a large, moisture packed storm anywhere near the Great Lakes states.
Wednesday a storm-free dayRoads should be dry across the Great Lakes Wednesday.
It will still be a chill day for travel, but most locations in the Great Lakes will warm above freezing.
So right now I’d expect very few spots with unsafe travel from the day before Thanksgiving to the day after Thanksgiving.
As it stated in The main travel trouble spots this year, in regards to the weather, should be in the Northwest and near the Great Lakes.
(Photo: Scott Olson)Most travelers hitting the roads this week should see smooth sailing to their Thanksgiving feasts, but folks around the Great Lakes and in the Northwest could face some challenging weather conditions.
Lake-effect snow will cause problems over the next few days around the Great Lakes.
The biggest travel trouble spot throughout the week should be the Northwest, which will endure periods of rain and high mountain snow, potentially resulting in travel delays, according to weather.com.
On Thursday, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City will take place under clear but chilly and breezy conditions.
