Town braces for first winter storm

This year, AAA estimated a near-record 55 million people hit the road, rails and skies for the holiday travel period it defines as the five days from Wednesday to Sunday. The precipitation is expected to change to all snow overnight into early Monday morning.

There were a number of accidents reported around Western NY and the Finger Lakes on Sunday morning due to icy roads.

It also led to a 25-vehicle pile up on Interstate 68 in Garrett County, Maryland, about 20 miles from the state's border with West Virginia. State police said heavy fog created limited visibility in the area and the National Weather Service said there was winter storm advisory for that area. Thunderstorms are possible along that front, but the system should be out of the Southeast by Sunday night, according to CNN meteorologist Madeline Scheinost. A new storm in California was also expected to bring rain, gusty winds and several feet of mountain snow during the weekend.

"Travel is HIGHLY DISCOURAGED after 10 a.m. for the Coastal Range/Shasta County", the weather service's Sacramento office warned.

The Nebraska Department of Transportation said I-80 was closed in both directions and advised against travel in the state's Panhandle region.

As Thanksgiving travelers return home Sunday, a powerful storm heading toward the East Coast has left millions under various winter weather alerts.

The high temperature on Sunday will be about 31 degrees with a low of 30 on Sunday night and a high of 31 on Monday.

"It's going to be a pretty big deal", Grunzke said.

Parts of the Northern Plains into Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin could see snowfall of 6 to 12 inches, according to the National Weather Service, with some areas seeing as much as a foot and a half of snow.

The snowfall was expected to end by Sunday in the Twin Cities and Duluth.

New York City is forecast to receive up to 4 inches of snow mixed with rain into Monday, Brink said.

According to FlightAware, more than 225 US flights had been canceled and more than 2,000 delayed on Saturday alone as of early afternoon.

At Denver International Airport, there were 100 flights canceled Saturday because of high winds. Officials always suggest you check ahead with your airline before coming out to the airport.

SUNY Geneseo announced on its website that it has canceled all day and evening classes for Monday since many members of the campus community were traveling from areas forecasted to have challenging weather.

In the central United States, weather-related delays were hampering post-Thanksgiving travel plans by Friday: Officials in Rapid City, S.D., issued a no-travel advisory, while Utah Highway Patrol troopers reported a "huge smattering" of wrecks across the state beginning Friday afternoon, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
