Deadline today for Christmas packages to military addresses

If you’re trying to send some Christmas cheer to a special someone at a military installation, hurry to the post office.

Other notable dates for mail to arrive in time for Christmas include:

— Dec. 20: Domestic First Class mail

With winter storms sweeping across the country, outgoing mail may arrive later than planned.

FedEx Express experienced substantial flight and sort disruptions at multiple hubs Tuesday night due to severe winter weather. Service delays can be anticipated in Arkansas, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Texas.

UPS said it was experiencing delays in services in the Northeast and the Dallas area.
