Travel Woes Tying You Up?

22 Nov 2013, 11:49 am

If you’re getting an early jump on holiday travel, you’ll encounter a number of potential delays, as a cut-off area of low pressure slowly wobbles across the southwest and south central U.S. through early next week. Check out the winter advisories stretched from the mountains of southern California over to central Texas. An ICE STORM WARNING remains in effect into the early afternoon from Lubbock to Childress, TX, where up to a half inch of ice will create treacherous travel

Winter storm watches go into effect Saturday through early Tuesday, from New Mexico into central Texas, including the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. Freezing rain, sleet and snow is expected to expand eastward this weekend, so anticipate delays in and out of Texas’ largest airport by Sunday afternoon.

Heavy rain continues to produce delays in and out of Sky Harbor International Airport. Rain will begin tapering late Saturday night, but not before producing 2 to over 5-inches of rain locally.

Are you holding off your Turkey Day travel until mid-week? Rain may cause a few delays in and out of our northeast cities, such as New York and Boston. Not jumping on the Nor’easter train yet, since this system is still a ways from moving out of the southwest, but stay tuned.

Until next time! -Meteorologist Bryan Karrick (@bkarrickWNTV)
