Flight disruptions continued across the U.S. on Tuesday, easing slightly after severe weather caused an onslaught of delays and cancellations a day earlier.
As of 10: 30 a.m. ET Tuesday, more than 1,200 flights in, out of and across the nation have been delayed, according to flight tracking website FlightAware. Another 450-plus flights were canceled.
That's down from the nearly 10,000 disruptions passengers faced Monday. Just over 8,300 flights were delayed and an additional 1,485 flights were canceled.
