Central Illinois will miss out on any snow problems for Thanksgiving. But those in other places, like out east, there could be problems if traveling for the holiday.
If there's any bright spot, it's that gas prices remain low.
The National Weather Service reports no significant accumulation of any snow is expected.
If any snow, it'll be a rain and snow mix and won't pose any by travel problems.
