Southern California could see some heavy rains, even snow and low temperatures this Thanksgiving holiday, according to the L.A. Times.

It’s expected to be the strongest storm of the season stemming from a cold front in the Gulf of Alaska. 

Residents can expect to see the conditions begin to roll through the area early on Wednesday. Californians aren’t the only ones who should expect storms. The National Weather Service is reporting that multiple storms can be expected across the U.S. And that means potential travel delays throughout the long weekend. According to AAA, more than 55 million people are traveling for the holidays. 

Today on AirTalk, we get the latest on weather conditions and what they could mean for holiday travel, and we will check in on how the 4,100 acre Cave Fire in Goleta could affect roads, and be affected by the weather. 

For updates on this weekend's highway conditions, you can check out CalTrans' road information site or call 1(800)-427-7623.
