Storm could disrupt Thanksgiving travel plans for I-95 corridor

More than 10 inches of snow fell in areas of Oklahoma on Sunday night, and Arkansas residents were told to prepare for the end of a deadly winter storm that has been blamed for 10 fatalities as it moved east from California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico. As the storm continues onward, heavy rain could disrupt Thanksgiving plans for travelers on the East Coast later this week.

Airlines canceled hundreds of flights at Dallas-Forth Worth International Airport on Monday, as they had the day before, but forecasters said temperatures in North Texas would not be as cold as originally feared.

As the systems moves north and east, heavy rain is expected in the deep South later Monday, reaching the I-95 corridor beginning Tuesday. The rain could be enough to delay more flights, forecasters told Bloomberg. Snow and sleet are likely farther inland and in the Appalachians, according to the National Weather Service.

Travelers can hope that most of the precipitation will have fallen already by Wednesday, notes Capital Weather Gang's Jason Samenow. Weather on Thanksgiving day and through the weekend should be calm, cold and dry.
