Foto 3As a storm promising rain and heavy snow heads to the east coast and Appalachians, high winds were causing delays on Monday at numerous airports across the country.

The weather has caused almost 2,000 flight delays and 200 cancellations as of 2:30 p.m. EST, according to FlightStats, a flight-tracking service.

The airports impacted by the greatest number of delays and cancellations were Chicago O’Hare, LaGuardia, Dallas/Fort Worth International, and Baltimore/Washington International.

Meanwhile, rain and snow are expected Wednesday along the east coast, and the rain will change into snow from northern Virginia to New England late in the day.  Snow accumulations will vary, but much of New England will see 6” to 12” (15 to 30 centimeters) and some areas may see as much as a foot (30 centimeters) of the white stuff.

With blowing and gusting windows Wednesday night, travel conditions in many areas will be hazardous.
