Easter US Storm Could Cause Holiday Travel Chaos

On Tuesday, a severe storm system advancing along the eastern seaboard of the United States is poised to disrupt the year’s busiest travel period, with over 55 million individuals anticipated to journey ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

According to the U.S. National Weather Service, thunderstorms are predicted to sweep from the lower Mississippi Valley to the mid-Atlantic region from Tuesday through Wednesday morning. Simultaneously, parts of northern New England are expected to experience snowfall.

This severe weather outlook is likely to lead to delays and increased traffic, coinciding with what the AAA group anticipates to be the most bustling travel period in the country since 2019, predating the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The industry group Airlines for America projects that U.S. airlines will transport approximately 29.9 million passengers between November 17 and November 27. This would mark a historic high, surpassing last year’s 27.5 million during the same period by 9% and exceeding pre-COVID record levels by 1.7 million passengers.

The majority of travelers are expected to opt for road travel, with AAA reporting that around 49 million Americans plan to hit the road between November 22 and November 26, reflecting a 1.7% increase from the corresponding period in 2022.

The most substantial rainfall and challenging driving conditions are likely to be concentrated along the Interstate 95 corridor between Washington and New York, particularly from Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning, as indicated by Andrew Orrison, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
