A wet Thanksgiving was forecast for most of the Southwest and the southern and central Plains, while lake-effect snow was expected in the Great Lakes region.

Heavy rain was predicted across the Four Corners on Thursday, with higher elevations likely to get several inches of snow. Winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings were issued across the region.

Southern California was likely to see lingering showers, but the heavy rain that brought flash flood warnings to areas burned by wildfire was moving eastward. Mostly sunny skies were predicted for the Northwest, except for a few clouds and showers along the coasts of Washington and Oregon.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms were forecast across Texas and parts of Louisiana and Oklahoma. The northern Plains were expected to see partly cloudy to clear skies.

Parts of New York closest to the Great Lakes were forecast to get between a few inches and half a foot of snow. Mostly clear skies were expected across the rest of the Northeast.

Sunny skies were likely across most of the Southeast, though frost was predicted in parts of Florida.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states on Wednesday ranged from a low of 1 degrees at Crane Lake, Minn., to a high of 84 degrees at Falfurrias, Texas.
