MILLIONS of Americans could see travel delays this Thanksgiving and 43,000 California residents could experience power outages.

The American Automobile Association predicts more than 53million people will travel by air or on the road for the holiday, which could result in major delays.

Forecasters have also warned of a significant winter storm and cold front expected to hit the US Northeast and Midwest regions this week.

From Texas to Ohio, residents will experience a cold front that will bring rain showers, along with some snow showers for Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, on Thanksgiving day.

Temperatures rebound mostly back to normal by Thursday for much of the eastern half of the US.

New York residents will likely see temperatures in the low 40s.

Meanwhile, the National Safety Council estimates 515 people may die while on the roads during their holiday travel.

"If this estimate holds true, Thanksgiving 2021 will experience the most deaths since 2007," NSC reports.
