Weather could cause problems as Thanksgiving travel begins

About 55.4 million Americans are expected to travel during Thanksgiving, according to the AAA. Some of them will hit the road or board a flight this weekend. Most of the country should be decent for travel Saturday, but wider impacts are possible Sunday. That will change leading up to Thanksgiving, as a storm system could create chances for both severe and winter weather.
