Wednesday - Holiday Travel

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days in the United States. To be prepared, I always encourage you to check weather and road conditions before hitting the road, airport, or train station.

The AAA is predicting that “Thanksgiving travel to rebound almost to pre-pandemic levels.” This translates to 53.4 million people to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, up 13% from 2020,” according to AAA predictions.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist mentioned that Wednesday, “Thanksgiving Eve will be a very tranquil day across the contiguous U.S. No severe storms, flooding, or major winter storms. Weather won’t be an issue for travelers.”
