Snow in South complicates holiday travel

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A rare white Christmas is complicating life for some travelers after airlines canceled hundreds of flights, while snow is predicted for the nation's Capital and travel authorities are warning of potentially dangerous roads.

The National Weather Service said the storm could bring more than 5 inches of snow to the Washington region. Meteorologist Stephen Konarik said the storm could hit the area Sunday morning and end Sunday night or early Monday, with the peak snowfall Sunday afternoon and early evening.

Brian Korty at the National Weather Service said travelers in the northern Mid-Atlantic region New England may want to rethink Sunday travel plans. He said they may see "nearly impossible" travel conditions.
