Tomorrow is considered to be the busiest travel day of the year for most airports, and many people are heading home for the holidays.
A storm that is expected to hit the Ontario and Quebec regions starting tonight, could create some major problems for travellers.
Our Meteorologist Richard Zurawski says if you are planning to travel in or out of those regions, you may end up facing delays or even cancelled flights.
“They’re going to be getting about 15 to 25 centimetres of snow and there’s a risk of getting some freezing rain. That will start late tonight into the overnight period and definitely into tomorrow morning. So if your travel plans are tonight and into tomorrow, it’s not going to look good at all.”
Zurawski says things should improve by Saturday.
“The reason it is a concern for us, is a lot of folks like to travel at Christmas time. Things are going to really slow down over the next 24 to 48 hours if you’ve got travel plans. You’ll want to check with the airline, because things are not going to be good.”
This storm is moving in from the U.S. Midwest. It has already closed schools and created dangerous driving conditions there.
