Traveling from L.A. for Thanksgiving? Leave earlier than you planned. A lot earlier.

The National Weather Service says there will be rain across the state and snow levels so low in elevation they could close major freeways like the 5 and the 15.  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-11-26/california-faces-a-rainy-snowy-thanksgiving-mess-not-made-for-instagram-ready-east-coast-trolling 

Already, a storm in Northern California close the 80 near Lake Tahoe.  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-11-26/storm-northern-california-heavy-snow-rain 

In some parts of the state, tire-chain laws will be in effect. Be prepared. Our primer:  https://www.latimes.com/travel/story/2019-11-26/tire-chain-safety-tips-snow-california-thanksgiving 

Rain that firefighters hope will help dampen the Cave fire could also cause rockslides and mudslides:  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-11-26/cave-fire-firefighters-counting-on-rain-to-save-the-day-extinguish-flames-in-santa-barbara
