Despite remaining well off the Southeast coast, Sandy still threatens to impact some people in Atlanta early next week.
Heavy and gusty rain squalls will graze the Southeast coast into this weekend before Hurricane Sandy slams into the Northeast Monday into Tuesday.
The sun will shine brightly in Atlanta Monday and Tuesday as a gusty and chilly breeze blows.
That breeze alone could lead to a minor flight delays, but many airline passengers at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport may actually find themselves stranded with Sandy to blame.
The Northeast is bracing for a historic event Monday and Tuesday as Sandy moves onshore with widespread damaging winds, flooding rain, severe coastal flooding and high-elevation snow.
The severity of the situation is sure to force airlines to cancel flights throughout the Northeast, including at the heavily-traveled airports around New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
The ripple-effect from these cancelled flights threatens to create a travel nightmare in Atlanta with airline passengers waiting for planes that are held up in the Northeast.
The flight backlog created by Sandy may take extra long to fix since the storm (which will no longer be a tropical system after Tuesday) may not fully exit the Northeast until next weekend.
Those flying to and from Atlanta next week, especially from Monday to Wednesday, should consider trying to reschedule their flight to this weekend.
