Good news! There is no 'massive snow storm' slamming into New York for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Governor Kathy Hochul warned holiday travelers of significant Lake Effect snow storms in the Buffalo and Watertown areas that forecasters were predicting. She even advised traveling earlier than anticipated to avoid getting stuck in the storm.

Do not make next Wednesday your main day to travel, or else you'll get stuck. You will be either stuck at home, not able to travel, or worst case that you can be stuck on one of those roads or the New York State through ways.

No Thanksgiving Snow

Those predictions have turned into #fakenews. There will be holiday precipitation but it'll be rain, not snow.

The weather change is great news for all the holiday travelers hitting the road for Thanksgiving. Trying to drive in lake-effect snow near Buffalo and Watertown is treacherous and dangerous.

Wintry Mix in CNY

The National Weather Service is calling for a wintery mix in Central New York in the days before the holiday. But Thanksgiving Day looks great with lots of sunshine and temperatures in the mid-40s. Black Friday looks nice too. It'll be cloudy but still in the 40s.
