Holiday getaway day slowed by gray weather

McLEAN, Va. — Gray, wet weather contributed to a slow, but not gridlocked, getaway day ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

At the Washington region’s three major airports, Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport had moderate delays on some flights Wednesday morning, but they eased through the midday. Fewer delays were reported at Dulles International and Reagan National airports.

The massive storm that hurtled through the eastern U.S. dumped primarily rain on the Washington region in the morning. Temperatures dropped during the day as sleet and fat snowflakes fell in parts of the region, but temperatures remained above freezing.

Farther west, the National Park Service closed Skyline Drive because of icy conditions.

Interstate 95 in northern Virginia had backups of several miles each way during the morning rush, but such delays aren’t unusual there.
