NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Commuters and travelers along the East Coast are facing transportation cancellations and delays after yet another winter snowstorm battered the region.

Most of the New York and New Jersey metro areas endured more than a foot of snow, while areas of Connecticut and Massachusetts were buried by more than 30 inches.

Winter weather advisories were announced across the northeast U.S. in the face of blizzard conditions. Snow and ice made roads treacherous while many airlines were forced to cancel and delay flights. Some airports had to shut down completely.

John F. Kennedy and Newark airports stopped operations in the face of the overnight storm.

Newark reopened at 9 a.m. EST Thursday morning, while JFK reopened on at 10 a.m., according to the Federal Aviation Administration Web site.

The Weather Channel reported that snowfall in New York City ceased at day-break and diminished in Boston, Hartford, Conn., and Providence, R.I. by mid-morning.

The weather system left behind six to 18 inches of snow from northern Virginia to Maine and in several spots across southern New England. In such places as Newark, N.J., snow was falling at the rate of three inches an hour for several hours on Wednesday night.

New England winds will continue to hamper the cleanup effort across the region, with gusts reaching up to 40 miles per hour for most of the day.
