Pre-Thanksgiving Storm May Complicate Travel Plans

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – A deadly pre-Thanksgiving winter storm that is freezing out Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas might sound a world away, but if you’re traveling this holiday week — you need to pay attention.

National Weather Service meteorologists say the Arctic mass will head south and east Tuesday and Wednesday as people hit the roads and airports for some of the busiest travel days of the year.

Officials advise that you check your plane ticket and plan ahead, especially if you have a connecting flight in Atlanta (ATL), Charlotte (CLT), and New York’s JFK. Check:

More than 300 flights were canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport Sunday afternoon and evening, representing about one-third of the scheduled departures.

Thanksgiving itself should be clear, forecasters say; it’s today through Thanksgiving eve that is worrisome.
