On the eve of one of the biggest travel holidays in the year, a storm is threatening the travel plans of 20 million people in the Northeast, according to a warning issued by the National Weather Service.

Wednesday’s expected Nor’easter will bring rain and snow to the north and the west of the I-95 corridor. Rain began to fall in the morning hours in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., and quickly began to turn into snow, causing delays on I-95. Areas in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey could expect three-to-six inches of snow by the end of the day. Some New England states will see up to half a foot of snow.

For those flying out of the east coast, over 200 flights were canceled by noon Wednesday.

The snow should abate all along the east coast by Thanksgiving Day, with temperatures climbing far enough above freezing to improve road conditions.

But it could always be worse: In Siberia, it was so cold that a plane got stuck to the frozen ground. After spending 24 hours on the tarmac, passengers finally got out of the aircraft and pushed it themselves on Wednesday, captured in this astounding video reported by Tass.ru.
