Thousands of Flights Canceled As Northeast Braces for Massive Blizzard
The Northeast is anticipating a massive blizzard starting on Monday, which is already stopping stop flights across the country.
NBC Right Now-- The Northeast is anticipating a massive blizzard starting on Monday, which is already stopping stop flights across the country and the Eastern Seaboard is already seeing some of the white stuff fall from the sky.
It is coming on the heels of a storm from over the weekend, but this storm could dump as much as three-feet of snow on New York City.
A blizzard warning has been issued for New York and Boston and staff at the National Weather Service said to expect heavy snow and powerful winds through Tuesday.
If you have an airline ticket to travel to that part of the country Monday, your flight may already be canceled and your chances to fly might be even worse on Tuesday.
Airlines have already grounded more than 3,200 flights, a move that came even before the first snowflakes began falling in the region Monday morning.
Carriers are also waiving change fees for flights at dozens of airports across the region.
Passengers with flights to or through the area can expect to see major disruptions possibly through the remainder of the week.
Even if airlines are able to resume flights on Wednesday, flights schedules could restart unevenly and there could be a backlog of stranded fliers competing for whatever empty seats remain on those flights.
