As of Saturday afternoon, nearly 600 flights had been canceled and more than 9,600 delayed in the USA, according to FlightAware. "Snow will last for several hours on Monday before dissipating into the late evening hours".

A Winter Weather Advisory also covers Genesee, Orleans, Allegany and Wyoming counties into late Monday morning.

But much of the Harrisburg region was receiving only rain, with the heaviest rain expected to fall around 11 a.m., according to National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Dangelo.

The National Weather Service predicted more than a foot (0.3 meters) of snow in swaths of upstate NY and New England, as well as ice accumulations in parts of Pennsylvania.

North of I-80 and areas north and west (Sparta): Snow, then freezing rain, then much more snow is possible depending on storm location. NY will see up to 2 inches of snowfall an hour Sunday and Monday, it said, making for risky roads as the snow piles up. The precipitation is expected to change to all snow overnight into early Monday morning. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has placed the National Guard on standby, he said.

Airlines at O'Hare International and Midway International in Chicago reported average delays of 15 minutes as a winter storm headed towards the Midwest with heavy snow and ice and gusty winds.

Wind gusts up to 80kmh created ground blizzards and below-zero wind chill temperatures in some areas. Snow accumulations of 4 to 6 inches are expected with localized higher amounts possible under heavier bands that develop.

Roads will become slippery making travel risky as temperatures will fall through the afternoon into the evening.

The West Coast was pushed with winter storms beginning this week, causing thousands of flight stays.

Shasta County is located between Sacramento and the OR border.

The utility said it would be passing out firewood to affected residents with the help of authorities.

The storm will have moved on come Tuesday.

Of special concern is Sunday, which is expected to be the busiest travel day ever for the USA airline industry, with an anticipated 3.1 million passengers, according to Airlines for America, an airline trade organization.

Due to delays and cancellations, Delta Airlines announced weather waivers for almost two dozen cities in the Northeast for Sunday and Monday, including airports in Boston and the NY area.

Delta Airlines said weather could interrupt travel at airports in the uppermost Midwest on Saturday and the northeast on Sunday and Monday.
