A large winter system moves across the U.S. that could impact Thanksgiving travel.

The weather could put a damper on holiday travel plans this Thanksgiving.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), moderate to heavy rains are continuing to move over the southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions while light snow is continuing from Ohio eastward through central New England.

The NWS has issued winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories for a large area from the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys eastward across the Appalachians to the interior Mid-Atlantic region and the Lower Great Lakes as well as interior New England.

Flood watches are in effect for parts of the Northeast, Carolinas and Northwest.

CNN reported that bad weather has already disrupted the west, from California to Texas, and could bring snowy and icy conditions to the East. But rain is only likely in New York.

Windy conditions however, could compromise the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons. According to CNN, authorities are prepared to pull them from the parade if sustained winds exceed 23 mph on Thursday.
