Few travel headaches reported over the holiday weekend

(WFIE) - Thanksgiving travelers heading home after the long holiday weekend had another reason to be thankful both in the tri-state and much of the nation.

Although airports were crowded, trains were packed and many cars were on the highways, there were few delays as millions trekked home after feasting with family and friends.

Favorable weather conditions helped keep schedules running smoothly on what is traditionally one of the busiest travel days of the year.

According to AAA, More than 43 million people were expected to travel 50 miles or more this holiday weekend.

If you have travel plans Monday night and early Tuesday, the tri-state will see rain, but wintry weather is for the most part unlikely.
