WESTCHESTER -

Millions are expected to be traveling for the holidays this year.

Many who left Saturday morning say that traffic wasn't too bad.

"We left early anticipating a lot of traffic," said Bruce Johnson, of Ridge. "It's been good so far."

AAA says more than 97 million people will be driving between the holiday weekend and the New Year. That is a 3 percent increase from last year.

Air travel is also expected to be up by 4 percent this year with more than 6 million expected to be flying nationwide.

Weather was also expected to be an issue for holiday travelers. It rained through the day on Saturday, and there is a possibility for snow on Christmas morning.
