NEW YORK (PIX11)-- As Americans hit the road this holiday weekend, they are likely to encounter thousands of other drivers doing the same thing -- and if they're in the northeast, they'll be doing it all in the snow.
An estimated 42.2 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles from their home this holiday, according to AAA.
That's 11.4 percent more than last year. Mother Nature will also make a special appearance this Thanksgiving, in the form of sleet, snow, and rain.
One thing is for sure, if you are hitting the road, you better be prepared.
