Thanksgiving
Sunny, windy, cold in all directions

"The rain should start to diminish by Wednesday night, so leaving then would be OK. The ideal time, if you can swing it, would be Thanksgiving morning," says NBC10 First Alert meteorologist Tedd Florendo.

Passengers flying for Thanksgiving are urged to "pack their patience." Philadelphia International Airport spokeswoman Victoria Lupica said arrival delays of almost two hours will be impacting depatures, and about 40 flights have been canceled, so be sure to check travel delays and cancellations before you head out the door.

US Airways, Delta, JetBlue and United are allowing passengers to change their flights either today free of charge. Check their websites for specific details.
