As tired travelers make their post-Thanksgiving trek back home - and back to work - two winter storms continue to disrupt travel plans throughout the nation.
The system, which has been pummeling the US since before Thanksgiving, has already dumped heavy snow from parts of California to the northern Midwest and inundating other areas with rain.
The powerful storm was heading for the north-east US. Airports in the NY and Boston areas accounted for many of them.
Flight cancellations and delays mounted through the day, most in airports in San Francisco, Newark, and Boston.
LaGuardia Airport now has 13 canceled flights, with 91 delays, while JFK Airport has just four canceled flights and 60 delayed flights, FlightAware reports.
About 400 flights were cancelled on Saturday.
The NWS predicted snowfall of 6 to 12 inches for much of New York's lower Hudson Valley, interior northeast New Jersey, and interior southern CT from Sunday morning.
Duluth, Minnesota, is cleaning up more than 21 inches of snow.
Elsewhere in the country, the storm proved deadly.Читайте также: China makes face scanning compulsory for mobile phone owners
