(Blizzard 2010 story updated with information that JFK Airport is experiencing 5 hour delays, while Metro North, LIRR and NJ Transit have restored limited services.)
Jet Blue ( JBLU), US Airways ( LCC), Delta Airlines ( DAL) and Southwest Airlines ( LUV) are still experiencing delays and cancellations at many east coast airports as crews try to clear runways of the accumulating snow.
The Weather Channel reported that snowfall was expected to diminish from south to north today, but strong winds of up to 60 miles per hour created significant blowing and drifting conditions that made driving and flying extremely difficult. Airport crews worked to remove the accumulating snow from the runways at all of the major airports along the coast. However, even though the snowfall has generally subsided, wind continues to hinder removal efforts by blowing snow back onto the tarmacs. Snow began falling in the southeast region of the U.S. on Saturday, and the storm moved up the East Coast Sunday into Monday. Winter weather advisories were announced along the coast in the face of blizzard conditions. Roads remained treacherous while Amtrak rail service experienced major delays and several cancellations.

As of 1 p.m. Monday, limited service on Metro North Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven lines had been restored. Certain trains were operating hourly and making all local stops. Other trains were operating on a Sunday schedule with some cancellations. The MTA urged its customers to stay home on Monday if possible, as the Hudson Rail Link bus service was shut down due to blizzard conditions, including high winds and snowdrifts. Today, limited service has been restored on several rail and subway lines for the morning rush hour. MTA crews continue to work to clear up snow from the tracks and switches. The Harlem Line will be running on a Saturday schedule this morning and Bee-Line buses will operate on regular schedule, except for Routes 8, 30 and 32, which are running on standard snow detours. Amtrak suspended service between Boston and New York on Sunday night. It has resumed its service with some possible delays and service adjustments.
All rail service is operating on the enhanced weekend schedule on all other lines except the Atlantic City rail line service, which will follow a regular weekday schedule, due to "continued severe weather conditions and anticipated low ridership," NJ Transit said on its Web site. New Jersey transit bus service was restored at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday. NJ Transit says that bus customers should expect possible delays based on local road conditions and allow extra travel time. NJ Transit continues to advise its customers to travel only if absolutely necessary. -- Written by Theresa McCabe in Boston. >To contact the writer of this article, click here: Theresa McCabe. >To follow the writer on Twitter, go to @TheresaMcCabe. >To submit a news tip, send an email to: email@example.com.
