As drivers sat on snow snarled roads Tuesday night, some city aldermen began to rethink their approval of a plan to cutback funding for snow removal.

Chicago's airports were mostly back to normal Sunday after Saturday's storms caused big delays.

Surprisingly, O'Hare is operating normally, but Midway had a few cancellations, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation.

But due to the East Coast storm, officials still reminded travelers to check on a flight's status with the airline before heading out.  The storm on the East Coast is expected to dump up to 2 feet of snow from Washington to Philaldelphia, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures are hovering right around the freezing mark around Chicagoland, and some light snow is still possible today. Illinois State Police reported several spin outs on Saturday, and cautioned drivers to slow down and drive safely.   The city's Streets and Sanitation Department stopped its snow plows late Saturday night after about 24 hours of keeping the streets clean.

Sunday's match-up between the Chicago Bears and the Baltimore Ravens has been delayed for several hours due to a prediction of heavy snow.
