Hundreds of Flights Canceled and Thousands Delayed as Winter Storm Disrupts Post-Thanksgiving Travel

A big winter storm packing high wind, ice and heavy snow caused major disruptions for travelers returning from the Thanksgiving holiday at airports across the United States.

The storm was threatening to dump more than a foot of snow on upstate New York and parts of New England on Monday. New York City and Boston could get more than 3 inches.

As of Monday morning, 338 flights were canceled and more than 1,500 were delayed, according to flight-tracking website Flightaware.com.

More disruptions were possible as snow resumes in the afternoon. Some arriving flights into New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Boston Logan International Airport were delayed two hours and more than three hours at Newark Liberty International Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The disruptions come on top of more than 950 cancellations, ranging from Boston to San Francisco, on Sunday due to stormy weather. Some 8,400 flights were delayed across the U.S. Sunday.
