USA Today reports almost all flights were canceled late Monday night at the three big airports serving New York City: John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark Liberty airports. At most, about 2,750 people, based on the number of seats offered daily between New York, Boston and Hong Kong, would be affected by flight disruptions on Tuesday.

Officials have canceled hundreds of flights for Tuesday, mostly in and out of Baltimore-Washington International Airport, LaGuardia Airport, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Chicago's Midway.

Washington expected to get roughly 3 to 4 inches of snow; New York City, 4 to 8 inches; and Boston, 7 to 11 inches. Poor weather could extend into early Wednesday at some New England airports. The airline says changes must be made prior to the original departure date for new flights departing on or before Friday, March 17, 2017.
