Winter Storm Saturn Hits Northeast, Cancels Thousands of Flights
The winter storm which dumped as much as three feet of snow in Montana and resulted in thousands of flight cancellations and delays is now pounding the New York metropolitan area and New England.
Snow will continue in the region, including northeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey and Delaware, possibly mixing with rain at times, until late Friday night, at which point winter storm Saturn is expected to be offshore. High winds will hammer coastal eastern Massachusetts and eastern Long Island with the possibility of additional power outages.
Over 1,300 flights in the U.S. were cancelled between yesterday and today due to the storm. In addition, over 6,000 have been delayed, according to FlightStats, a flight tracking service. Earlier in the week, the storm resulted in the cancellation of over 4,000 flights.
