Daily Weather Briefing for Wednesday, November 21, 2018




HOLIDAY TRAVEL

Today is one of the busiest travel days of the years and area roads may be congested, so expect delays in getting to your destination. Leave a little earlier than usual and be patient on the roadways. The number of accidents will probably be higher than normal so be on the lookout for emergency personnel and tow truck drivers in or on the side of the road near accident locations.
