Another region in the U.S. may be getting their unofficial start to winter this week. 

After the Midwest got their first dose of frigid weather on Halloween, parts of the Ohio Valley and Northeast are expected to receive their first snowfall on Thursday. But it’s unlikely to cause any snow days.

"A thin stripe of light snow, possibly mixed with light freezing drizzle, could stretch from the mid-Mississippi Valley into the Ohio Valley and interior Northeast,” according to the Weather Channel. 

Although it is still too early to predict how much accumulation, if any, it will most likely be on the lighter side on the east coast as temperatures will not dip below freezing, however Buffalo, N.Y. and Cinncinatti, O.H. is expecting 23 to 26 degree weather.

Meanwhile, the desert plains and the desert southwest will likely see rain and thunderstorms on Wednesday. 

Although winter weather conditions always has the potential to affect travel plans, at this point, it doesn’t look like this snowfall will cause any major travel delays across the country.
