FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - With Thanksgiving day just around the corner, many people will be traveling throughout the country to visit with family.

However, a busy 7-days in weather could cause some concerns.

The beginning of the week will start off dry. A good chunk of Tuesday won't be too bad either throughout the Midwest.

However, rain is anticipated to move in later during the day on Tuesday.

So, if your plan is to get off work and start driving to your destination on Tuesday evening, you may need to account for a few extra minutes.

The system, mostly, wraps up on Wednesday morning here in the Midwest.

Temperatures will be sliding though, so once Wednesday evening rolls around, we'll see temperatures in the 30s.

We'll see a few snow flurries here in NE Indiana and NW Ohio, but with a bulk of the snow falling to the west of Indiana during the mid-week, those traveling to places like Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, etc... may need to plan ahead.

Another big issue for Wednesday is winds. They'll be gusting upwards of 50 mph at times, which will cause some drivers headaches.

Thanksgiving Thursday looks to be good for travel as does Friday.

Unfortunately, another system, similar to the one moving through the Midwest on Tuesday/Wednesday will move through this weekend.

The exact path is unknown at the time, but those traveling back home on Saturday and Sunday could face issues as rain and snow are expected to impact much of the Midwest and Great Lakes region.

As always, longer-range forecasts tend to change, so check the FOX 55 Severe Weather Center website to get the latest forecasts and make sure to check your travel plans before leaving to assure you won't run into any issues.
