It's Tuesday.

It's our last show before Thanksgiving.

Millions of Americans are expected to travel for the holiday.

One thing they might want to pack: patience.

A stretch of winter weather is making its way across the country and threatening to cause havoc for travel plans.

Heavy snow, strong winds, freezing rain-hundreds of flights have been affected, most of the winter weather should be gone by Thursday, but the days leading up to Thanksgiving could be a scramble for travelers and airlines.

Two things that should never go together: peak holiday travel and treacherous winter weather.

A traveler's nightmare: cancellations, delays and frustration all around.

In Dallas where ice coated airplanes, airlines were forced to precancel hundreds of flights to avoid the inevitable.

Airlines and airports are experienced with wild weather and they are ready for this round.

You can call this the nerve center of the airline.

United watches the weather and directs every flight around the world from their headquarters in Chicago.

The decision to cancel flights happens here.

These individuals are actually measuring the impact of weather.

Of the air traffic control system and coordinating not only internally with United Airlines, but with the FAA.

They are talking to this FAA command center near Washington.

Let's go to Jacksonville and get their concerns first.

Conference calls keep airlines and FAA controllers up to date with changing conditions, and a warning for travelers: think before you book.

Probably, the worst mistake is to take a connecting flight or if you do connect to connect through a known bad weather airport like Chicago or Denver or Detroit or Minneapolis.

Airports that are prone to snow storms.

But a storm as big as this one will be hard to avoid.

Well, yesterday we reported on an international agreement involving Iran's controversial nuclear program.

We told you some government's responses to this deal.

Today, we've got more reaction.

The sanctions actually worked, but this interim deal gives the Iranians $7 billion in cash, and it leaves in place one of the most sophisticated enrichment programs around.

I become very happy because as a first thing, that's a thing about it, is about medicines.

The medicines.

Effects of on the price of medicine, because it's very high and I see it's better now.

I'm disappointed by the terms of the agreement between Iran and the P5+1 nations.

Because it does not seem proportional.

Everybody is happy about it, because we hope for a change and the situation that we are.
