If you're traveling over the river and through the woods to grandma's house for Thanksgiving, and grandma doesn't live in Rockford, prepare your sanity for some rough travel situations this year.

I hate being the bearer of bad news, but I fully believe you need to be aware of what's coming. So, I will let WIFR Chief Meteorologist Mark Henderson do it instead;



If you have a flight planned in the next few days, check before you leave for the airport.

If you're driving somewhere allow plenty of extra travel time.

Be safe, stay sane and Happy Thanksgiving!
