Mother Nature has started singing Christmas carols, and first up is “Let It Snow”! Storms across the nation are threatening to delay travel plans for millions of Americans this year.

Colorado, Kansas and Iowa are expected to get the worst of the storm on Wednesday with blizzard warnings in effect and up to a foot of snow predicted in the Rockies. Delays already started Wednesday morning at Denver International Airport, where flights were delayed up to 30 minutes due to snow and ice.

The Pacific Northwest is currently digging themselves out of a storm that previously hit the busy travel hub, but they are expected to receive more than a foot of snow on Wednesday according to the National Weather Service.

It doesn’t stop there. The National Weather Service also warned that Chicago could be hit by heavy snow and slick roads on Thursday. In addition, Detroit is expected to see unpleasant travel conditions with rain and wind coming on Thursday, and quickly changing to snow and ice on Friday.

These storms come just as 93 million American travelers are heading out for Christmas and New Year’s. There is some good news – it seems that airlines are in the holiday spirit. Most major airlines including United, Frontier and Southwest are waiving change fees due to the weather.
