Below, I wrote about travel around The United States on Wednesday and to be honest, I don’t see any reason why you would need to worry about someone not making it to the dinner table on Thursday. Atleast, not from weather stand point. But, when it comes to flying, you can never be too sure. Airlines have removed some of their metal from the sky as fewer planes are flying and tickets are more expensive. However, this year does not look like the year where airlines can blame weather for any type of travel cancellations.
Most of the major airport hubs in America will be just fine this Wednesday. Dallas-Love, Dallas-Ft Worth, Denver, Atlanta,Houston and Memphis will likely be delay free. Those airports service the airlines of American, Southwest, Frontier, United, Continental and Delta/Northwest.
Where we could see some minor delays, but nothing significant will be in the Great Lakes region where a small storm system could produce a mix of rain and snow, but given the area we are talking about here, these regions can handles the mix better than we can here in The Southern Plains. So, the airports of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Chicago-O’Hare and Detroit International may have some small delays are some aircraft may have to be deiced which could delay planes by no more than 30 minutes.
Headed back next Sunday, the travel may be a little more active, but nothing that should be of great concern. Headed north into Colorado, light snow showers are possible while the Gulf States and eastern Oklahoma may have some rain showers to deal with.
