CHICAGO (AP) — Holiday travelers are bracing for nasty travel weather throughout much of the nation over the weekend, as a winter storm brings everything from rain to ice to snow.
The worst of the storm is expected to hit Midwest population centers on Saturday, as the storm lifts north and east.
Forecasters were predicting everything from freezing rain and snow in the north to torrential rain in the Ohio Valley and Appalachia and possibly even tornadoes in the South.
The foul weather could cause headaches for the estimated 94.5 million Americans planning to travel by road or air during this holiday season.
Weather forecasters say rain is expected to turn to snow in some parts of the upper Midwest on Sunday, with 6-8 inches of accumulation in some areas.
