Next to a burned turkey or an obnoxious dinner guest, it’s one of the most unwelcome Thanksgiving developments: a big, wintery storm on your travel day.

But that’s exactly what’s being forecast in much of the U.S. on Wednesday, just as tens of millions of travelers will be hitting the roads and the skies for the holiday. Rain is expected to fall on pretty much the entire East Coast, with rain changing to snow from northern Virginia to New England. Parts of New England could get up to 10 inches.

Airlines have already started letting passengers with Wednesday flights in some of the trouble spots switch to other days without a fee.

So if you’re planning to venture out into the stormy airways and roadways this Thanksgiving season, here are some words of advice.
