Air, road, rail travel struggle to recover from historic Blizzard 2016 2:37

The hangover from the weekend's historic snow was far from over Tuesday, with more than 600 flights canceled and some New York residents complaining their streets had still not been plowed.

More than 400 of those arrivals and departures were at Newark Liberty International. However, the situation was improving nationwide after some 12,000 cancellations over the weekend.

The Metro subway system in Washington, D.C., was scheduled to resume normal service on most lines Tuesday morning, but federal workers in the city, as well as Maryland and Virginia, were ordered to stay home.

The storm buried cities and counties across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, with parts of West Virginia getting more than 40 inches and areas of New York City around 30 inches. At least 41 people were killed.

Authorities in New York said that by Monday evening, 98 percent of the city's streets had been plowed, according to NBC New York.

However, residents in some boroughs were still claiming Monday night and early Tuesday that their roads were still covered in snow.

People in Queens adopted the #PlowQueens Twitter hashtag to call for the city to dig them out.

Meanwhile, forecasters warned there was an outside chance of more snow for the East Coast on Friday.

"Since this potential storm is still several days out, a lot of scenarios are still on the table," according to The Weather Channel.

Even if the storm were to hit land, however, a repeat of last weekend's epic snow totals was unlikely. Far more probable was the weather system to remain off the coast.

In the Midwest, lighter snow between 1 and 3 inches was expected Tuesday for an area covering Green Bay and Milwaukee, in Wisconsin, and Grand Rapids, Michigan.
