The travel plans for Thanksgiving could potentially disrupt the upcoming storms. According to the forecasters, cyclonic storms heading for the northeastern U.S. will be expected to pass through a few major cities along the eastern coast.

It's too early to forecast the storm's tendencies and path, but at the very least – the temperature will probably drop with strong winds for early next week.

Major cities are on the list where storms could strike heavily, might cause severe delays for thanksgiving travel plants for millions of Americans.

"We could be looking at a huge mess and a real wrench in holiday travel," said Jon Porter, AccuWeather's Chief Meteorologist.

Thanksgiving is on the way. Many people have already scheduled their plans for vacations. Despite Covid-19, the more than $53 million Americans are projected to travel for Thanksgiving this year. According to the American Automobile Association (AAA). "With 6.4 million more people traveling this Thanksgiving coupled with the recent opening of the U.S. borders to fully vaccinated international travelers—people should prepare for roads and airports to be noticeably more crowded."

The U.S government issued an emergency preparedness guide for people to better cope with storms and bad weather. If you could get stuck at home for several days, the following recommended items should be in your emergency supplies toolkit.

1. Battery-powered radio with extra batteries

2. Windshield scraper
