Airlines have canceled thousands of flights this weekend as a powerful winter storm with strong winds and inches of snow is set to batter major cities on the east coast. Nearly 5,000 flights within, to or from the United States have been canceled through 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, FlightAware said, with East Coast hubs hardest hit. More than 3,500 US flights were canceled on Saturday alone. Boston's Logan Airport, a hub city for JetBlue and Delta Air Lines, has seen 500 cancellations this weekend. About 15% of JetBlue's schedule was canceled on Sunday, although that's an improvement from the 70% of its schedule that was canceled on Saturday. About 18% of American's flight schedule and 22% of United's flight schedule for Saturday were also canceled. Republic Airways, a feeder airline that operates flights under the American Eagle, Delta Connection and United Express names, canceled 60% of its flight schedule on Saturday. Both airports have significant operations for Delta, JetBlue and American. Newark Liberty in New Jersey, United's hub, had 383 cancellations this weekend. Delta, JetBlue and United have all issued exceptions that allow travelers flying from multiple East Coast airports to rebook without paying a fare difference. "Delta's meteorology team at the airline's operations and customer center will continue to monitor winter weather and make tactical adjustments as needed," the airline said. A spokesman for American Airlines said the storm "is expected to have a significant impact on our operations in the Northeast, particularly at Boston Logan International Airport." The path of the Nor'easter this weekend is becoming clearer as 75 million people from the Southeast to New England could face dangerously heavy snow and winds approaching hurricane intensity with the potential to turn off the power, flood coastal areas and seriously affecting travel, forecasts show. The storm is expected to unleash a double whammy of heavy snowfall and high winds in parts of the Northeast, but the precise impact across the region remains in question. "This storm is likely to strengthen at a rate and intensity rivaling only the strongest hurricanes, so the high-end potential of this storm cannot be overstated," said CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller. Winter weather and Omicron surges caused 20,000 US flights to be canceled during the busy holiday travel season. As travel increased, staff cuts also meant airlines had fewer employees than before the pandemic.

Blizzard, winter storm warnings issued. Monster blizzard to bury the state in up to 18 inches of snow.

UPDATED FORECAST SATURDAY: Heavy snowfall, hazardous snowstorm conditions continuing today.

winterA snowstorm warning has been issued for the five counties along the Jersey shore and winter storm warnings have been updated for nearly the entire state for a monster snowstorm affecting New Jersey starting tonight with up to 18 inches of snow and widespread totals between 4 inches will strike and one foot. The blizzard advisory, which indicates a dangerous combination of high winds, blowing snow and low visibility, includes Atlantic, Cape May, Eastern Burlington, Monmouth and Ocean counties. The rest of the state (with the exception of Sussex and Warren) has been hit with a winter storm warning. Light snow is already falling in northern New Jersey as a harbinger of tonight's main event. It's supposed to snow from 7 p.m. in South Jersey when all warnings take effect, and later on Friday evening in Central and North Jersey. Snow and gusty winds, which can reach 80 km/h, are expected to continue into Saturday afternoon. Counties of Warren and Sussex are subject to a winter weather warning until 3pm. Saturday. The remaining warnings last until 7 p.m. Saturday. The Jersey Shore and southeastern Burlington County are expected to get 8 to 15 inches of snow as 50 mph but up to 18 inch wind gusts are possible. Blizzard conditions are most likely a few miles from shore from late Friday night to around noon Saturday, the weather service said. According to the Weather Service's technical definition, a snowstorm must exhibit all of these conditions for a period of three hours or more: falling and/or blowing snow, sustained winds or frequent gusts of 35 mph or greater, and visibility that is often reduced to a quarter - mile or less. Here's the forecast elsewhere in the Garden State, according to the weather service. * Camden, Gloucester, Middlesex, Mercer, Northwest Burlington, Salem and Somerset: 4 to 11 inch accumulation with wind gusts up to 35 mph. * Bergen, Essex, Union and Eastern Passaic: 4 to 7 inch with wind gusts up to 40 mph * Hudson: 6 to 9 inches and maximum gusts of 45 mph * Morris and Hunterdon: 3 to 6 inches with gusts of up to 35 mph * Western Passaic: 4 to 6 inches and gusts of up to 35 mph * Sussex and Warren: 2 to 4 inches with peak wind gusts reaching 40 mph AccuWeather.com still calls 6 to 12 inches for most of New Jersey with lesser amounts further north and west. Once the snow settles in, the big concern is wind chill levels, which will drop below zero on Saturday night and Sunday. Sunday will be sunny but cold - high temperatures will be below freezing. Sunday night and Monday night will be downright cold with lows falling into single digits Sunday night through Monday in northwestern New Jersey.

Over 100 km without power, snowstorm warnings in the North East amid a strong winter storm

A strong winter storm has caused snowstorms in some regions and left power to more than 100,000 customers in Massachusetts. (Author: Gardener)

the North EastA powerful winter storm continued to dump snow in the northeast on Saturday, as hurricane-force gusts contributed to complicated travel, more than 100,000 power outages and snowstorms near major cities. Officials banned non-emergency travel in some areas and urged drivers to stay off the roads. Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey said more than 85% of scheduled flights Saturday were canceled due to the storm. More than 100,000 customers in Massachusetts were already without power as of Saturday afternoon, according to poweroutage.us, with about 85,000 Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard customers on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard without power as of 4:15 p.m. More blackouts are likely in southern and eastern New England -- and elsewhere along the mid-Atlantic coast, AccuWeather said, encouraging people to prepare for long outages and have flashlights and blankets on hand. Winter weather will spread from the mid-Atlantic coast to the northeast coast throughout Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. Conditions are expected to ease by Sunday when the storm moves into Canada, the NWS said. Parts of 10 states were under blizzard warnings Saturday: Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. Major cities like Philadelphia, New York and Boston -- as well as much of New England -- are expected to bear the brunt of the storm, with winds gusting up to 100 miles per hour in some areas. Parts of New York and New Jersey confirmed snowstorms Friday night and Saturday morning, according to local NWS reports. The governors of Maryland, Virginia and Delaware declared states of emergency ahead of the storm, which began Friday night, and had National Guard members prepared to join the cleanup effort. The Maryland State Police tweeted that as of Saturday morning soldiers received more than 670 service calls and responded to 92 accidents. Wind gusts in eastern Maryland made it difficult for snowplows to keep roads clear as snowdrifts could cover them again in minutes, the state's highway administration said. In videos posted to social media, storm chasers struggled to get up while walking against high winds that threw snow in their faces. The Weather Service said the powerful Nor'easter evolved overnight, dubbing the system a bomb cyclone -- another name for the process known as bombbogenesis. The storm is "probably the strongest and most disruptive snowstorm and snowstorm in several years for parts of New England and the immediate mid-Atlantic coast," AccuWeather said. WHAT IS A NOR'EASTER: Storms can bring snow to the east coast, affecting millions of people. According to AccuWeather, people in the area woke up Saturday morning to snow accumulation already in the double digits, and another 2 to 3 feet could fall in parts of New England. Much of the Northeast Coast will see snowfall accumulations of more than a foot, NWS said. Some regions will see as much as two to three inches of snow per hour, according to the weather service. Cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills in the east after the storm "could exacerbate an already dangerous situation for those without power/heat," the NWS said. Officials across the coast warned people to stay off the roads as high winds and snow create possible whiteout conditions. "Expect whiteout conditions and near-impossible travel at times," the NWS said. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation warned on Twitter that already difficult travel will worsen as the day progresses. Some coastal flooding and beach erosion are also possible as a result of the storm, according to the NWS. Waves smashed across parts of southern Boston, flooding streets with cold water. While Boston is no stranger to snowstorms, this weekend's storm is expected to be the city's first snowstorm since 2018 and could even become one of the largest on record, AccuWeather said. If Boston sees 20 inches or more of snow, the storm could break into the city's top 10 snowfall, the weather service said. AccuWeather has forecast 18 to 24 inches of snow for Boston. The city's past major snowstorms include the President's Day Storm of 2003, which buried some areas under 30 inches of snow, according to AccuWeather, while Boston faced 27.6 inches.

USMNT's George Bello leaves Atlanta United for Germany's Arminia Bielefeld

The 20-year-old defender continues the young American's trend into the Bundesliga (Author: Gardener)

George BelloUSMNT defender George Bello joins from Atlanta United. Bello has joined Arminia Bielefeld with a contract until 2026. He will wear the number 24 for the team and is expected to start as a left-back. Cercle Brugge and Club Brugge of Belgium were also chasing Bello this January transfer window but the 20-year-old preferred the move to Germany. Bello made his senior debut with the United States against Trinidad and Tobago in January 2021. The young left-back has since been called up for last summer's Concacaf Gold Cup and started the final against Mexico. Gregg Berhalter called up Bello for the December friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina, which came in the middle of the European club season with an MLS-dominated squad. Bello didn't get the call for World Cup qualifiers and will be watching Wednesday's Concacaf showdown against Honduras (7:30 p.m. ET | Paramount+) in Saint Paul, Minnesota from home. Bello was signed by Atlanta United as a homegrown player in 2017 but didn't make his MLS debut until 2018. In over 52 senior appearances, Bello has scored three goals and provided three assists, with the vast majority coming in the last two seasons in which he started full-time at left-back. While other defenders in the league have provided more than Bello in the attacking third, most are not as young as him, apart from Kevin Paredes, who recently joined Wolfsburg from DC United. Given the Americans' good development in Germany and Bello's contract situation, it makes perfect sense why his camp would want to wait to join Arminia instead of signing in Belgium. An interesting tidbit is that four of the bottom six teams in the Bundesliga are likely to have at least one American in their starting XI. Augsburg made Ricardo Pepi their record signing and now Arminia has Bello.
