The big travel day on Wednesday will be pretty quiet across the country. There will be snow in the Rockies. A slow moving low pressure system will help spread rain showers and storm across states to our south and west on Thanksgiving.

It will shift northeast and bring more rain to the Miami Valley and the northeastern US again Saturday night and Sunday.
