(NEWSER) – A nor'easter is expected to develop along the East Coast just as millions of travelers head to their Thanksgiving destinations. The storm, forecast to dump rain along the coast and snow further inland, could cause delays along busy Northeast highways and has the possibility of upsetting travel plans at regional airports. "I would pack your patience," says Robert Sinclair of AAA New York. "Unfortunately, the storm is scheduled to hit right in the middle of getaway day."
Sinclair—who notes that an estimated 41.3 million travelers are expected to hit the nation's highways for the holiday weekend, a 4.3% increase over last year—says travelers should consider traveling today or Thursday, instead of tomorrow.
