As of 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time, over 2,290 flights had been canceled in the nation, with a further 780 delayed, according to FlightStats, a flight tracking service, and those numbers are expected to rise drastically throughout the day.

Driving conditions in many parts of the country are hazardous and numerous accidents were reported on major and secondary roads and highways.

In the South, cities such as Shreveport, Louisiana and Jackson, Mississippi can expect to see around a half an inch of snow by the end of the day, while Nashville, Tennessee could see over 3”.  Lexington, Kentucky may see above 2”, and Charleston, West Virginia could potentially see more than 4”.

Moving East, Richmond, Virginia could get around 3” of the white stuff, while Washington, D.C. can expect between 3” to 8” by the end of the day.  In Baltimore, Maryland, 8” of snow is expected to fall.

Further up the East Coast, Philadelphia can expect to see between 3” and 7”, and New York City may see up to 7” as well.
