NORFOLK - Parts of the country socked by a wild weekend storm will be covered with ice -- and some without power -- through Christmas and beyond thanks to a steady diet of freezing rain and cold temperatures.

More than 5,500 flights were behind schedule by Monday evening, the majority of those in New York, Washington, Chicago, Denver, Dallas and Houston.

More than 300 flights were canceled Monday, mostly in Chicago, Denver, Houston and Dallas, aviation data company FlightAware said. The number is in line with a typical travel day and much improved from Sunday's 700 cancellations.

There are usually more than 30,000 daily flights in the United States.

At Norfolk International on this Christmas Eve morning, there were few lines and no delays as weather was improving across the country.
