Weather and travel: Thousands of holiday travelers remain stranded as airports, rail lines and road departments try to recover from a blizzard that struck the U.S. East Coast on Sunday and Monday.
By Monday night, at least 4,155 flights had been canceled, up to 32 inches of snow piled up in some areas, and wind gusts blew as strong as 80 mph.
"This storm was one of the most challenging storms we've had in a decade or two," Thomas Bosco, general manager of New York's LaGuardia Airport, said Monday.
CNN meteorologist Jacqui Jeras said the onslaught of snow is expected to take a break.
"The good news is, the snow is done falling, for the most part, but we're still feeling the impact from the storm," Jeras said Tuesday morning. "The strong winds will be prevalent today."
Tuesday Night Football: The storm forced the NFL to postpone Sunday's game between the Eagles and Minnesota Vikings in Philadelphia until Tuesday night.
The contest will be the first NFL game played on a Tuesday since 1946.
And it's not just another game. If Philadelphia wins, it gets to skip the first round of the playoffs.
Teena Marie autopsy: The music industry awaits autopsy results for R&B singer and songwriter Teena Marie, who apparently died in her sleep Monday at age 56.
Marie's publicist, Lynn Jeter, said Marie was taken to a hospital last month after suffering a seizure.
Marie sang under various record labels, including Motown, Epic, Stax Records and Cash Money Classics, since bursting on the scene as a 19-year-old, according to her website. Her last studio album, "Congo Square," featured several collaborations.
Ivory Coast summit: The presidents of three West African nations, along with envoys for the United Nations and the African Union, are meeting with Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo and his challenger, Alassane Ouattara, to try to resolve that country's political crisis.
Presidents Yayi Boni of Benin, Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone and Pedro Pires of Cape Verde were meeting with Young-Jin Choi, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's special envoy and a representative of the African Union.
The three heads of state represent the 15-member Economic Community of West African States, which held an emergency meeting Friday in Nigeria and delivered an ultimatum to Gbagbo to step down or face possible military force.
