Severe weather that's already hitting parts of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas could wreak havoc on holiday travelers in what's expected to be the busiest travel weeks in nearly a decade.

The National Weather Service says freezing rain may extend from North Carolina to Tennessee and into Central and Eastern Pennsylvania today, and snow is expected west of the Appalachians.

Airports including New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Boston are already warning of potential delays. Aviation officials say they're expecting 2.56 million air passengers — the most they've recorded since 2007.
