Dozens of South Florida flights were canceled Monday as a powerful nor'easter could bring blizzard conditions and more than a foot of snow from the mid-Atlantic to parts of the Northeast.

Twelve flights in or out of Louisville International Airport on Monday had been canceled, as of 8:30 a.m., according to FlightAware.

American Airlines has already canceled all flights at Logan after 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Though flight cancellations are a pain, there is some good news-most airlines are offering free rebooking for those affected by the storm. The airlines don't want their planes stuck in the middle of a snowstorm. Southwest and American Airlines account for the majority of cancelations.

Southwest has now called off 884 flights.

Chicago is bearing the largest share of Monday's cancellations, while Tuesday's disruptions are hitting hardest in the East, from Washington to Boston including the New York City area.

We are expecting some snow over the next few days across the state of NY. Poor weather could extend into early Wednesday at some New England airports. Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley and Atlantic City worldwide airports are all telling travelers to check with their airlines before heading to the airport.

About 20 inches of snow is expected to fall in Newark on Tuesday. Snow will begin Tuesday morning with the heaviest snow and most significant impacts expected Tuesday night.
