Travel headaches for some into Christmas Day
CHICAGO, IL - Travelers setting out for the holidays could face trouble, with snow anticipated in the Great Lakes region and rain expected along the country's East Coast.
The National Weather Service predicts Christmas Eve precipitation from Missouri to Michigan, with rain turning into snow in some areas.
Several inches are expected in Illinois, which could cause headaches at Chicago's O'Hare and Midway international airports. Officials there were preparing for potential delays and cancellations, particularly with more people expected to fly this holiday season.
Severe storms in the South on Tuesday killed at least four people, damaged homes, businesses and cars, and knocked out power to thousands. The severe weather led to some delays at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. But airport spokesman Reese McCranie said a ground stop wasn't expected.
