MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) Thanksgiving travelers along the East Coast are heading out early ahead of a forecast calling for a nor'easter that will bring rain and snow.
The National Weather Service's lead forecaster says most major Northeast cities will likely see moderate to heavy rain most of Wednesday.
Meteorologist Andrew Orrison says higher elevation areas west of the I-95 corridor could see as much as 6-10 inches of snow.
Although the coast would see mostly rain, the Weather Service says the storm could leave a few inches of snow before exiting the region early Thursday.
Jenna Bouffard, a public relations executive in Manhattan, isn't taking any chances. She says switched her travel plans and is leaving on a bus Tuesday afternoon for her home in Uxbridge, Massachusetts.
