It is going to be a mess for pre-Thanksgiving travel Tuesday
and Wednesday. A second storm likely on Thanksgiving Day itself.
Because there are plenty of blogs that cover the East Coast (especially!) and West Coast, we focus on the central United States. I am going to break things down by 24-hour periods from midnight to midnight.

The areas of red on the wind map feature gusts of 55 mph or higher -- very hazardous for high profile vehicles. This will include I-40 from near the Oklahoma-Texas border to Albuquerque.
A second winter storm will occur in Utah and parts of Montana. ?= second winter storm that may be developing Wednesday night in the southern High Plains and Thursday in the central Great Plains.
Wednesday Winds at noon: Extreme winds possible in the Midwest.
Here is a map of the gusts for the entire day with emphasis on the afternoon and evening.
