Winter storm takes aim at Northeast

Santa Barbara County Fire Department shows a Santa Barbara Fire Department truck along E. Camino Cielo as snow falls at the 3,500 foot level on the fire footprint in Santa Barbara Calif. Thursday Nov. 28 2019. Wintry weather Travel Woes Pile Up From Winter Storms as Thanksgiving Ends

The worst snow in the region will be north and west of NY that could get 6 to 12 inches and closer to a foot near Albany.

It has been blamed for several deaths.

Thanksgiving travel was snarled in some places by two powerful storms.

CBS News correspondent Don Dahler was in the path of the storm Monday in Greenfield, Massachusetts. Several portions of the Sierra Nevada received more than a foot of snow overnight.

Major highways reopened Sunday in Wyoming and Colorado, a day after blizzard conditions clogged roads with snowdrifts.

Authorities found the bodies of two young children in central Arizona after a vehicle was swept away while attempting to cross a runoff-swollen creek. "We have [expected a] 24-inch forecast in the Northeast by the time snow ends Tuesday morning", Samuhel said. NY also posted lower speed limits on some highways. Snow has been falling for hours in other parts of northwestern New Jersey.

Gov. Charles Baker said almost 4,000 pieces of equipment - 2,100 plows, 1,400 plower-spreader combinations, and 460 front end loaders - will be on the roads, and state troopers lowered the speed limit on the Mass Pike to 40 miles per hour.

With more snow still falling in MA, state officials were asking people to avoid travel completely.

Duluth officials asked the public to be patient as ploughs clear roadways and recommended that drivers stay off the roads to prevent accidents and let officers respond more quickly to emergencies.

For many across the country, getting home from holiday trips at one of the busiest travel times of the year has been made almost impossible.

Flightaware.com reports that more than 180 flights into or out of the United States are canceled as of Monday morning. Both are in effect from 4 a.m. Monday to 1 a.m. Tuesday.

As CBS News transportation correspondent Kris Van Cleave reported, it was shaping up to be a holiday travel season to forget.

The Weather Channel predicted that snowfall will likely impact travel from the central Appalachians to upstate NY and parts of western and northern New England on Monday.

Airports of particular concern on Monday were Boston and Hartford, Connecticut's Bradley.

American Airlines waived date change-fees for travelers booked to fly on Dec. 1 or Dec. 2 to or from more than 30 airports in the Northeast, including LaGuardia, Kennedy, Newark, Philadelphia and Boston, if travelers can fly as late as Dec. 5. Airports in the NY and Boston areas accounted for many of them.

Weather issues extended to the West Coast, where a storm and high winds delayed flights at San Francisco International more than four hours.

Here's what you need to know about the most disruptive storms coming through this week.
