Travel Alert January 2022: Winter Weather to Affect Northeastern United States

Winter returns...with a vengeance.

If the northeastern United States is in your travel plans over the next few days or so, you may want to consider delaying your travel — or, at least, keep yourself updated as to the latest information pertaining to the weather — due to a winter weather system which will bring both snow and frigid air to the region.

Travel Alert January 2022: Winter Weather to Affect Northeastern United States

As much as a foot of snow expected from portions of western North Carolina and extreme northeastern Tennessee to extreme southern New Jersey through Tuesday, January 4, 2022 for cities such as Roanoke, Cape May, Ocean City, Charlottesville, Dover, Richmond, and the District of Columbia — up to 18 inches of snow can possibly fall in higher elevations and local areas — while up to six inches of snow is forecast from central Tennessee all the way to central New Jersey for cities such as Bristol and Atlantic City; and up to three inches of snow is predicted from northern Mississippi and western Tennessee all the way to Massachusetts, which includes cities such as New York, Nashville, Cape Cod, Knoxville, Philadelphia, Greensboro, and Chattanooga…

…but frigid air is expected to cover the regions after the snow and could break low temperature records in a number of cities, as high temperatures can be as much as 40 degrees Fahrenheit cooler within 24 hours.

The unusually cold winter weather is only adding to the thousands of cancellations and delays of flights which have been plaguing airlines in the United States since Christmas Eve on Friday, December 24, 2021.

Flight Waivers, Delays and Cancellations

If you are traveling to or from the northeastern United States over the next few days or so, expect delays and cancellations of flights. Keep up to date on the latest information pertaining to this winter weather system which may adversely affect your travel plans. Better yet, postponing or canceling your trip might be a better option — no matter which mode of travel you plan on taking.

If you have a flight scheduled, your flight may be delayed or canceled — and you may be eligible for a waiver of a fee to change your itinerary.

Here are five airlines which have issued travel alerts as a result of this weather system:

Final Boarding Call

Expect the cancellations or delays of flights to continue in general until further notice — and do not be surprised of additional airlines issue travel waivers as a result of this winter weather system.

Be sure to contact your airline or transportation provider for the latest information pertaining to your travels — if they are adversely affected — and please: travel safely.
