Many people will be traveling this week to see family for Thanksgiving. If you're one of those, there are a few things you may want to know ahead of time:

Winter weather has already caused problems for the Southwest, according to the LA Times. The eastern states are expected to get hit later this week. Flights could be delayed and roads may get treacherous.

Airlines for America is expecting about 25 million travelers during its Thanksgiving counting period. That means if your flight is canceled or you miss it, you may have a hard time getting a seat on another crowded flight.

Those same crowds will slow you down at airport security and other checkpoints. Be sure to arrive early enough to get a jumpstart on the lines.

If you have to rebook your outgoing flight, make sure to re-confirm your return flight. Some airlines will cancel the return flight when you cancel the outgoing flight.
