Potential snow and rain could disrupt flights, cause power outages

The region might experience an unseasonable taste of snow on Saturday, thanks to an intense East Coast storm that will bring cold temperatures and heavy precipitation to the area, according to the Capital Weather Gang. We could wind up with rain and no snow, and we could wind up with several inches of snow. To keep tabs on that, keep your browsers trained on PostWeather.com.

Bad weather usually winds up causing headaches for travelers. If you are planning on flying this weekend, you should check with your airline before heading to the airport.
