Flight cancellations pile up as storm heads east in the US

Snow timing forecast starting Sunday

Snow timing forecast starting Sunday

Portions of Pennsylvania are being warned of unsafe ice accumulation occurring Sunday, which officials say will cause travel to be "nearly impossible".

The bodies of two children were found in central Arizona after the vehicle they were in was swept away while crossing a swollen creek.

Flight cancellations and delays mounted through the day, most in airports in San Francisco, Newark, and Boston.

The unsafe snowstorm moved towards the country's north-east on Sunday, with hundreds of flight cancellations and delays affecting Thanksgiving travellers.

At Denver International Airport, 100 flights were canceled Saturday because of high winds. About 10 miles east, a 48-year-old man died in a separate incident; a storm-related death was also reported in South Dakota.

"The potential exists for 8 to 16 inches of snow across interior portions of NY and extending eastward to southern ME, with winter storm warnings in effect", the forecast read.

Schools closed preemptively as rain was expected to turn into snow in the region's first significant storm of the season, a nor'easter so named because the winds typically come from the northeast.

There were also dozens of flight delays in Chicago and Minneapolis.

"Heavy snow can be expected from the eastern Dakotas to northern MI on Sunday, with potential snowfall accumulations on the order of 6 to 12 inches", the forecast read. By 12:30 p.m. Sunday, more than 500 flights were canceled in the US, compared to about 400 on Saturday, according to flight-tracking site FlightAware.

Farther south, rain and thunderstorms were forecast along and ahead of the cold front, with heavy rainfall possible on Saturday in parts of the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys.

More than a foot (0.3 meters) of snow is expected in parts of upstate NY eastward to southern Maine.

Another system was forecast to develop in the mid-Atlantic Sunday, moving into a nor'easter by Monday.

The authorities in the western states were on Saturday still grappling with the aftermath of heavy rains and snow over the busiest travel weekend of the year.

High winds and ice were making travel nearly impossible in some other places, however.

Major interstates in Colorado also reopened.

That was added to a foot (30 centimeters) of snow that fell before Thanksgiving.

All roads in and out of Casper were closed Saturday morning, including the entire 300-mile stretch (483-kilometer) of Interstate 25 in Wyoming.

Travel was also hard in Colorado Saturday as winds blew around snow that fell in previous days.
