Late-week storm may impact holiday shipping as Christmas deadlines near
A major storm that will plow into the eastern half of the United States late this week could throw a wrench into plans for early holiday travelers as well as holiday shipping. AccuWeather Chief Broadcast Meteorologist Bernie Rayno said major travel delays are likely as the storm shifts from the Southeast to the Northeast.
“This late-week storm is gonna impact a large chunk of the eastern half of the United States with rain and wind,” Rayno said. “Travelers via airways or roadways can expect delays. Also, holiday shipping is gonna be impacted as well.”
“It always pays to order online early because it’s possible that shipments can be delayed by a couple of days by storms so it’s always advisable not to order something on the 23rd if you want something by the 24th,” said AccuWeather President and Founder Dr. Joel N. Myers.
