While most of the U.S. will have a quiet weather pattern to travel back home from Grandma`s following the long Thanksgiving break, the Northwest and Northeast will be the trouble spots.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.

Not only is today a big travel day of the holiday but it`s also the start of December, and Mother Nature will waste no time bringing stormy weather to the Northwest.

A low organizing in western Canada will pivot southward, bringing downpours to the Northwest Coast. The rain could be heavy enough to send rivers, creeks and streams out of their banks in places like Seattle. Caution should be used if you`re driving along waterways and in low-lying areas. Rain will change to snow in the Cascades with heavy snow likely slowing travel along Interstates 15 and 90 in the northern Rockies.

Interior and northern New England will be the other weather hiccup in the U.S. to conclude the weekend. A bit of snow will brush the Green and White Mountains and much of Maine while a brief period of freezing drizzle and light snow changes to rain in Boston, Hartford, Conn., and Providence, R.I.

Otherwise, California, the Great Basin, Southwest, Plains and East can expect dry weather and ample sunshine Sunday.

No major Arctic temperatures will be found in the U.S. to kick off December. Highs will climb into the 30s in the Mountain West and Northern Tier. Warmer 50s and 60s will invade the Northwest Coast, Great Basin, central and southern Plains, Tennessee Valley and Mid-Atlantic.

The warmest spots today will be the San Joaquin and Sacramento valleys, the Southwest, Rio Grande Valley and Florida. Here, temperatures will warm well into the 70s.
