While we had a round of wet weather for drivers, people traveling by air were hoping the snow in the Northeast wouldn't slow them down.

While there were some delays, many we travelers told ABC11 that they seemed to miss the worst of it.

"My mom was really worried that we wouldn't make it," said flyer Joel Galloway. "I'm glad we did."

"We came through Atlanta," said flyer William Tatum, "didn't know what we'd find there."

At least one flight on the arrival board was canceled. It was from Philadelphia.

In Pennsylvania, a storm there was expected to drop up to six inches of snow, and the wet weather along the East Coast made for a sloppy day on the roads.

Back in our area, the wet weather seemed to clear up in time for some on the road.

"It actually flurried there this morning," said a traveler from Charlotte. "It was sunny when I left and the roads are fine."

Roads may be drying up, but they are still full of holiday travelers.

There were several accidents tweeted out by Wake County 911 Wednesday night, but not nearly as many as last night.

Meanwhile, Thanksgiving will be the coldest day of the week with afternoon readings barely above 40 degrees. Then the rest of the holiday weekend will be just a little warmer with daily highs closer to 50 degrees. Our next chance of rain after today will not come along until early next week.
