AccuWeather says signs are pointing toward a displacement of the polar vortex that may be accompanied by a significant storm with rain, snow and wind in the northeastern United States during the days prior to Thanksgiving.  The polar vortex is a storm that typically hangs out within the Arctic Circle.  Arctic air within the bounds of the storm occasionally gets dislodged and pushes southward to the mid-latitude regions.  When cold air drops southward across the Midwest and into the East, a major storm can be spawned.  The magnitude and path of the cold air as well as the exact formation and track of the storm may become clear later next week.  Based on climatology, accumulating snow is much more likely to occur over the higher elevations from north and west of Interstate 95 to the Appalachians into the first part of winter. This is due to the impact of the relatively warm Atlantic Ocean.
