We at Traveler learned a new word today: bombogenesis.

"Confidence is high for a significant heavy snow and strong wind event affecting the Mid-Atlantic and New England Monday night and Tuesday", the National Weather Service said in a statement. Why do you need to know?

Air travellers faced major headaches Monday as a hard-hitting late-season winter storm began to snarl flights from the Midwest into the Northeast. And that means lots and lots of cancelled flights.

On Tuesday, when bulk of the storm is expected to coat the region with snow, more than 4,000 flights have already been canceled. The markets affected include New York City, Newark, Boston, Washington D.C, Philadelphia and Baltimore.

One family who talked with CBS46 News says snow in Charlotte, North Carolina forced them to miss their flight to Atlanta.

How many flights have been canceled Tuesday?

Travelers can rebook or travel standby within 14 days of their original dates at no extra fee. New flights must be booked for travel on or before March 17.

The airline said all change fees and applicable fare differences will be waived provided that original flights were ticketed on or before Sunday. Most of the flights were canceled, I'm surprised my flight wasn't was an 8:00 departure to Charlotte and the road conditions were pretty tough.
