What do you need when you have a lot of rain on the busiest travel weekend of the year?

Patience. Lots and lots of patience.

While Sunday is expected to be the busiest travel day of the year in the country, today, the day before Thanksgiving, is always near the top of the list, too. Add today’s expected rain and extremely strong wind to the mix, and you’ll need to figure in extra time to get where you’re going. Drive safely … and defensively. And, remember, the Illinois State Police are out in force on interstates and busy state routes through Monday. They're looking for speeding, distracted, unbuckled and over-served drivers.

As always, WLPO will have all your weather news, whenever you need it, this weekend and all through the winter.
