(Newser) – A mighty storm is brewing off the East Coast and forecasters fear it could reach land just in time to cause Thanksgiving travel chaos. Weather models suggest a variety of outcomes when the storm moves north and meets a blast of Arctic air, but the most likely one is believed to be plenty of wind and rain in coastal cities, and up to a foot of snow over a huge area from the Carolinas to New England, Quartz reports. The National Weather Service says the possible nor'easter is "a concern for travel" and could affect major travel hubs ahead of the holiday. Forecasters believe the storm will probably be at its peak next Wednesday—traditionally the busiest travel day of the year.
