BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: to the rush that is under way in this country tonight. This is to of mind for millions of American families. And if you're waiting for somebody to come home for Thanksgiving , depending on where you live and where they're trying to start from, it could be a while. We'll put it that way. Our friend meteorologist Jim Cantore with us from Weather Channel headquarters tonight. Jim , show us where it's the worst right now and likely to be.
JIM CANTORE reporting: Brian , it's tough when you see a storm heading to the Eastern Seaboard , that I-95 corridor, but that's exactly what we've got. Let's take a look at it here. The storm that dumped a foot of rain in the last week on Arkansas is pushing to the east, but a cold rain tonight across much of the upper Northeast , especially from Chicago into New York . Temperatures in the 40s, a couple of tornado watches down to the south, so we're keeping an eye on that. But that's forward this till tomorrow, and there it is, that I-95 corridor, just inundated by rain. If you can hold off till late in the day , you'll be doing a lot better. Now those red airplanes signal where we expect problems at the airports tomorrow, so keep that in mind. And, yes, that is snow in northern New England for those of you who'll be skiing on this holiday weekend. So here's a few select cities for you. Atlanta looks good, which is a good thing because that is obviously one of the busier airports out there, if not the busiest. As we shift off toward the West Coast , we're fine in the middle. Denver , Salt Lake , all the way to Los Angeles . Most of the rain, Seattle and Portland . Expect some wind there and some airport delays, as well. All in all, Brian , the travel woes are on the edges. If you're traveling in the middle, all is good. Use a little patience and get there safely. Thanks.
WILLIAMS: All right. Don't know how to thank you. Jim Cantore at The Weather Channel tonight. Thanks, pal.
