The holiday Nor'Easter finally moved out of our area after complicating plans for millions of drivers trying to get an early start to their Thanksgiving travel.

While the storm has moved out, temperatures continue to drop. Overnight, temperatures will drop into the 20s, causing some icy spots on untreated roads, so be careful if you're taking a late night ride. Wind gusts will also be a factor. Northwest winds are gusting up to 30 miles per hour.

Continue to use caution while traveling.

Earlier in the day, sleet was reported as close as Wayne and snow was spotted in West Chester and Allentown.

Flood Warnings were also issued along the Chester Creek near Chester, Pa., along the east branch of the Brandywine Creek near Downingtown, Pa. and along the Christina River near Coochs Bridge in New Castle, Del.

Snow, sleet and freezing rain hit areas stretching from western to northeastern Pennsylvania. Right now a mixture of wet snow and sleet is falling in the Poconos.

Most of the rain and wintry mix cleared the area by 7 p.m.

Thanksgiving Day will be windy, very cold and clear, a nice change from the rain that poured down on the our area overnight Tuesday as a Flood Watch remained in effect until Wednesday afternoon. The rain became heavy at times, but by 6:30 a.m., NBC10 First Alert Weather meteorologist Bill Henley said the worst of the storm had passed.

Thanksgiving Forecast

Morning: 27-32 degrees, sunny, windy and cold

Afternoon: 32-36 degrees, windy and cold
