D.C. Expecting 6-10" Snowfall

Forecasters have raised their snowfall predictions for the Washington, D.C., area tomorrow to six to 10 inches, as a winter storm moves northward.

The storm has given parts of the South a rare white Christmas, but that's created more worries than pleasure for some travelers. One woman visiting relatives in Pensacola, Fla., with her husband and two children from Virginia says the family is now faced with a decision: leave for home on Christmas night or risk making the trek tomorrow when it could take twice as long. She says she likes a white Christmas as much as anyone, but she doesn't want to drive in it.

Airlines canceled hundreds of flights today, with Delta scrubbing 300 of its 800 scheduled departures from Atlanta.

The National Weather Service says the snow could reach the New York and Boston areas tomorrow, with overnight temperatures dropping into the 20s and wind gusts up to 30 mph.
