Traveling East? Consider Modifying Your Plans

If you are traveling Wednesday or Wednesday night between Asheville and Boston, you have a chance of major travel disruptions. At best, it will be windy and rainy. At worst, there will be heavy snow with high winds. Here is a preliminary forecast snow accumulations from 4am until 4pm (EST) Wednesday.
This is is not a storm total forecast (totals may be higher) and much can change between now and Wednesday. If it were me and I was planning to travel to this area, I would try to change my plans. The best approach would be to see if you can leave a day earlier. Sure, you may have to pay for a extra hotel night but being there, safe and secure, makes an extra hotel night a small price to pay. The same advice applies to driving.

My (free) airline survival guide tells you, step by step, how to do it. I suspect the airlines may issue waivers (some call them "exemptions" now) as early as Monday.

  1. I believe you are 100% correct on this one as the hours go by the more convinced I become it thing may turn into a storm that's really bad and will effect millions of people along the east coast of the U.S. from the Greenville, S.C. area all the way up to Maine! @EmergencyWxNet on Twitter we have been warning people for about two weeks now that this could happen! With all these people travlening I was hoping not but the way it looks at the moment I believe the snow is going to win this battle! THANKS! LEN R. HOLLIDAY

  2. Yes, each piece of data makes this storm look worse. Thus, being proactive could pay big benefits.
