Temperatures are set to plunge to the lowest levels seen on the holiday in over a century.

A band of haze stretches across more than a dozen states from Southern California to Massachusetts.

Travel plans are unimpeded going into the Thanksgiving holiday

A weak front will lower our temperatures some for tomorrow.

The freezing rain brought branches down on park roads which the National Park Service says it’s still working to clean up.

Daytime temperatures will struggle to rise above 30 to 35 degrees - more than 20 degrees below normal.

Although the forecast looks favorable for most of the Lower 48 this year, a few regions will face wintry weather and record-low temperatures.

The pattern at the end of November and early December might become favorable for snow, but it's too early to get excited.

Thanksgiving itself is likely to be the week's coldest day.

Sure, the weather has been a bit boring this weekend. But I think most of us are just fine with that at this point in the year.

We're mostly dry this week, with some light showers possible Monday night. Thanksgiving Day looks rather chilly!

Temperatures drop to near freezing tonight ahead of a Sunday that won't be very sunny.

We're getting at least a short break in the active pattern of late, but it will stay mostly cool.

We've got a much-needed break in the storminess on tap.

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, a tricky forecast has too many complex variables to overcome.

The heavy snow turned rush hour into total traffic chaos.

If you feel like it's been raining a lot, you're quite right.
