While the blizzard that's moved up the East Coast largely bypassed the Washington, D.C., area, it's effect on holiday travel has not.
At least 265 people spent the night at Reagan National and Dulles Airports last night, based on the number of blankets airports handed out. But the travel disruptions are likely to continue.
"Anybody who's flying today really should check with their airline before they come out to the airport to make sure that their flight is still on schedule," says Courtney Mickalonis, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Airports Authority.
"We have good weather here in Washington, D.C., today, but the storm has had impacts up and down the East Coast and that really has a domino effect across the whole air traffic system. So even if you're flying to a place that might not have snow, you still might see some delays and cancellations," she says.
Mickalonis says it takes a few days for disruptions like these to work their way through the air transit system, so people should continue to check with airlines before heading to the airport.
