Winter Storm Marches Up Eastern Seaboard

Winter Storm Cato is headed up the Eastern Seaboard, from the mid-Atlantic to New England,  causing major travel delays and disrupting Holiday plans, as the northeast braces for a winter wallop heading into the Thanksgiving weekend.

 

The Nor'Easter, packing a weather punch, is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in some parts of its path from Virginia to Vermont, snarling traffic, closing airports and generally causing major traffic headaches and delays as nearly 43million travelers begin the Holiday weekend.

With a rain lead in, most states along the storm's path will see a wet, rain precipitation changing over to a wintery mix, of rain, snow, and slush within about 4-6 hours as the slow moving storm makes its way up the eastern seaboard greeting holiday travelers.

"If possible, avoid traveling on Wednesday from the mid-Atlantic to New England. The worst weather conditions will be from early Wednesday morning to early Wednesday evening in the DC and Philadelphia area. Farther north, conditions will deteriorate mid- to late-morning in New York and Boston, and the worst of the rain and snow will continue into Wednesday night (about 8 p.m. in New York and midnight in Boston)," said weather.com meteorologist Linda Lam

For those traveling on the nation's highways in the path of this storm, in the Northeast, heed the warning and leave early. Begin the Holiday a day early, if possible, leave before 12:00pm.

Some roads have already been closed in advance of the storm so it is crucial to check for major road closure. Auto travelers should storm proof their car and be prepared for slow moving traffic. Fill the gas tank, carry blankets, have a fully charged cell-phone and extra power source.

Air travelers should check the carrier as massive delays have already been reported. Be prepared to be stranded. Trains should be running with delays. Again check your local carrier and be prepared to be stranded.

Remember arriving delayed is better than the alternative.

Drive safe, Travel Safe, Curb Road Rage and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
