-- A blanket of snow and a blast of frigid air is causing travel troubles from the Midwest to the Northeast.
Today, airports across the country have racked up nearly 3,000 delays and 600 cancellations.
Up to a foot of snow fell in Minnesota, while Chicago saw about 8 inches and about 10 inches covered Detroit, according to ABC News Meteorologist Max Golembo.
New York City's Central Park got its first measurable snow accumulation of the season, with a dusting of just .4 inches.
Snow and wintry precipitation made for messy, difficult traveling conditions on Monday morning in the Northeast as commuters made their way into work. Boston saw 1 to 2 inches overnight and snow continued to fall into the early morning.
Below freezing temperatures are expected for millions across a large part of the country in the coming days as an arctic blast moves in from Canada.
