Massive, sloppy storm system snarls holiday travel

CHICAGO (AP) - Residents of several upper Midwest states are expected to awaken to a new covering of snow, while northern New England could find a world frozen over in more than a half-inch of ice.

A sloppy storm system that dished a bit of everything Saturday on an area stretching from Texas to eastern Canada was expected to bring rain Sunday to areas back East that enjoyed spring-like temperatures the day before.

Travelers likely avoided the worst if they left or arrived in the Midwest by midday Saturday. But by afternoon, roads in many areas became slick and flight cancellations and delays started mounting.

By 11 p.m. CST Saturday, nearly 500 flights into or out of U.S. airports had been cancelled and some 7,000 had been delayed, aviation tracking website FlightAware.com reported.
