Beautiful weather along the coast greets holiday travelers

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The sky is blue. The temperatures are crisp. A one WLOX emailer said, it's a great day to be on the banks of the Tchoutacabouffa River. And for many of you, it's a great day to hit the road and get home for the holidays.

Thanksgiving eve is always one of the busiest travel days of the year. Highways fill up with cars. Airports fill up with passengers. Today is no exception.

If you're driving through Mississippi this weekend, be on alert. The Mississippi Highway Patrol will have additional troopers patrolling highways and interstates. They'll set up checkpoints and attempt to make your drive as safe as possible.

If you're flying, airport executives urge you to check with your airline before check in. A storm on the east coast could impact arrivals and departures.
