With more wintry weather forecasted for portions of the country today, Christmas Eve travel promises to be "an absolute nightmare, both in the air and on the ground," says the Weather Channel's lead meteorologist, Kevin Roth. Tuesday's winter storms throughout the Midwest added to travel delays that began over the weekend, stranding some passengers for four days. Chicago O'Hare saw more than 400 flight cancellations on Tuesday alone. The good news, according to the Air Transport Association: Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are the lightest flying days of the holiday season, allowing airlines to work through some of their backlog.
