Busy travel season off to a smooth start

The busiest travel period of the year appears to be off to a good start.

No major weather-related travel concerns are expected over most of the nation through the four-day Thanksgiving weekend, said Mike Clay, chief meteorologist with Bay News 9

Dense fog over parts of the Midwest and Northeast led to some airline delays or cancellations early Wednesday.

Tampa International Airport is seeing a predictable surge in traffic as the holiday gets under way, but no but no major problems were reported.

The airport expects more than 50,000 travelers on Wednesday and Sunday alone, said TIA spokeswoman Janet Zink.

Around Florida, as more than 2 million travelers take to the roads, the forecast is for mostly dry and sunny weather, with daytime highs in the mid-70s and overnight lows in mid- to low 50s.

Another cold front is expected to move into the state early next week.
