Stormy weather to blanket the Eastern half of the U.S. and Pacific Northwest this weekend

This year’s Christmas travel season could be a messy one – especially if you’re in the Eastern United States.

A massive storm system is forecast to drench the North and Southeast U.S. on Thursday and Friday.

This could complicate travel plans for tens of millions of Americans, as Thursday is expected to be the busiest travel day of the season.

An estimated 110 million Americans will be taking trains, planes, and automobiles in the coming days, according to the American Automobile Association.

But delays on the roads and in airports in the Eastern half of the country are to be expected, according to The Weather Channel.
