PARADISE, Calif. - Action News Now spoke to a family who had plans to leave town for Thanksgiving. Now, with the winter weather conditions, this family is readjusting their plans.

Like many, holiday travel plans are in the works for the Await family.

"We were planning on going up to Jonesville to my in-laws cabin that they have, it's a little family cabin that they go to," Kyla said.

But with winter weather conditions expected later in the week, it could prove a challenge for traveling.

"It definitely makes you reconsider if you should leave and if it's safe depending on where you're going," Kyla said.

Kyla Await and her family are keeping the travel plans fluid for now, in the case conditions get more serious.

"I think people are going to have to change their plans eat around, maybe eat at home or go out to eat if they're not safely able to get to the destination," Kyla said.

The family bought chains that they're going to put on their tires, especially when they're driving in those snowy hilly areas.

"We've definitely got extra stuff that we usually don't bring," Kyla said. "Snow boots, we're packing our gloves. For the kids and I, we're packing some snow bibs from Amazon."

It's a lot of new preparation, but not enough to get in the way of still finding time to celebrate the upcoming holiday.

"It's almost like this year is a little sweeter," Kyla said. "Because we realize last year you know there was so much tragedy heartbreak and loss that this year we're very grateful and thankful for all that we have and all our blessings and we are looking forward to it regardless of what the weather does."

Caltrans said last year on the day before thanksgiving Highway 99 and Skyway saw about 39,000 thousand cars.

It certainly didn't feel like early December around northern California this afternoon with plentiful sunshine and much warmer than average highs. A cold front is approaching, but we unfortunately don't have rain or snow in our forecast.
