The weather system that passes through Nebraska Tuesday will cause potential travel delays in the Ohio Valley, the northeast, and the southeast bringing precipitation to airport hubs like O’hare, LaGuardia, J.F.K, Atlanta, and Nashville.

Rain and snow showers will also be possible over the northwest corner of the country.

The weather should be a little quieter on Thanksgiving with precipitation falling over the northeastern and southeastern United States, however it should not be as widespread nor as troublesome.
