Forecasts suggest that travelers in Oregon will catch a break on Thanksgiving Day, but they'll face less favorable weather at the beginning and end of the holiday period.
Forecasts from around Oregon show the state emerging from a bout of storms but with showery weather or snow through Wednesday.
The holiday itself is expected to be dry in much of the state, and snow levels may be rising on Friday. That means easier travel through mountain passes.
But by Saturday and Sunday snow levels are expected to fall, so travel through the passes could be more difficult. The forecasts say the chance for significant precipitation is uncertain, however.
