Millions of travelers were impacted by the inclement weather, and the delays and cancelations continued Monday morning.

More than 2,800 flights across the U.S. were already canceled by 10 p.m. Sunday, according to flight tracking website FlightAware.

On Christmas Eve, there were more than 3,400 flights canceled.

Friday was the worst day for travel with more than 5,900 cancellations, while Thursday saw almost 2,700 cancellations.
