More than 635 flights were grounded before the end of Monday and more were likely as airlines tried to restart their operations. An estimated 400,000 travelers and thousands of flights have been affected by Winter Storm Stella-related cancelations or delays. In second place is New York's La Guardia airport, which has so far canceled 856 flights on Tuesday.

At San Francisco International Airport, 51 arriving flights and 38 departing flights were cancelled Tuesday as of 7 a.m., according to Bob Rotiski, airport duty manager. Some flights have resumed at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, which tweeted this out at 5:07 p.m. Tuesday.

An Old Tax Return from President Trump Leaks, So Where's the Rest?
Trump has long insisted that the American public is not interested in his returns and has said little can be learned from them. For months now, Trump has refused to release his tax returns , claiming he is barred from doing so because he is under audit.

Almost 3,900 flights had been preemptively grounded for Tuesday as carriers looked to keep their planes away from airports that could become snowbound. Other airlines were considering similar moves.

Some airlines also let you change flights online and through social media. About 50 flights at Hancock Airport in Syracuse have been cancelled on Tuesday.

"We're keeping a close eye on things and depending on how things go, will plan to ramp back up Wednesday morning", United said in a statement.

Cancellations were spilling into Wednesday, too.

Most of those can be attributed to weather, but not all, according to the duty manager's office at San Francisco International Airport.
