Hurricane Sandy could make travel tough

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Hurricane Sandy has the potential for major disruption to travel to the northeast U.S. from late Sunday into Wednesday. 

This weekend rip currents, high surf, beach erosion and rain squalls are possible from Daytona Beach, FL to southern New Jersey.

From late Sunday into Wednesday from Washington D.C. into New England major travel disruptions could occur due to canceled flights from high winds and heavy rains.

Wednesday evening the storm will move into Canada and weaken and travel conditions will return to normal.

The latest model runs have Sandy coming on shore over central Long Island Tuesday afternoon just to the northeast of New York City then cross to the mainland. 

As the storm moves through the densely populated northeast winds speeds will exceed 40 mph with gusts over 60 mph for an extended period from Monday night into early Wednesday morning. 

If you have travel plans from Washington D.C. northward through mid week you may have to modify your itinerary.
