    This NOAA satellite image taken Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013, shows an intensifying storm system producing strong to severe thunderstorms throughout the Southeast, with widespread clouds and rain found over much of the Northeast as well. Colder air settling into the Midwest was responsible for lake effect clouds and snow showers there, while clouds were also developing as colder air swept across the Gulf of Mexico.

The day before Thanksgiving, one of the busiest travel days of the year, will be bathed in sunshine on the West Coast and socked in with bad weather on the other side of the country.

A storm along the East Coast will result in travel delays. West Coast weather will be tranquil, the National Weather Service predicts.

The high temperature is expected to be about 62 degrees Wednesday in Sacramento, about the same on Thanksgiving. The low Wednesday night is predicted to drop to a 44 degrees.

No rain is forecast through the weekend for the region, providing good weather for the Run to Feed the Hungry participants in east Sacramento on Thursday. That dry conditions also will be good for impromptu family basketball and touch football games that break out after the annual feast.

The NWS notes a slight chance of showers in the Sierra Nevada south of Highway 50 on Thanksgiving. Snow levels are expected at elevations above 6,000 feet.
