UNDATED (AP) -- Conditions are relatively better at airports clogged by weather delays.

Still, Chicago O'Hare reports more than 100 flight cancelations today. There were more than 500 yesterday. Hundreds of passengers had to spend the night after getting bumped by the weather.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the New York metro area's Kennedy and Newark airports reported arrival delays of up to three hours.

Highway travel has been treacherous in some areas. At least 23 highway deaths are blamed on the ice and rain, including a woman and her 7-month-old son who died in a two-vehicle crash today in southeastern Wisconsin.
