    As snow sweeps into the region and up the coast, travelers at the end of this holiday weekend will be hit with a swarm of delays.  For those making long trips or just going out shopping, here is a round-up of Sunday's travel advisories.

    Megabus has cancelled all service in and out of Washington, New York, and Philadelphia.  All passengers who were scheduled to travel are asked to call 1-877-GO2-MEGA to change their reservation or to request a refund.

    Amtrak cancelled several trains in Va. Sunday, including a train between Richmond and Virginia. 

    AirTran and Southwest have cancelled flights out of Reagan National Airport and BWI.  An American Airlines official said flights through Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia would likely be canceled after 2 or 3 p.m. Sunday, with and late starts expected Monday morning.  Delta Airlines cancelled 850 flights systemwide Sunday, concentrated in the Northeast.

    Most carriers are waiving fees for one-time changes in affected areas and urging passengers to make changes through their websites.

    The Virginia Department of Tranportation is reporting icy road conditions in the south around Newport News and Suffolk.  Joan Morris of the Va. DOT said before heading out, "the smart thing to do is check 511 and know the travel conditions."

    Maryland's Department of Transportation has not reported any travel incidents yet on the highways.
