A blizzard descending on the the Eastern Seaboard is wreaking havoc on air travel, and likely will for several days.
The brunt of the blizzard is expected to bury Washington, D.C., in more than two feet of snow. The National Weather Service said Friday that this could be one of the top three storms in the history of the nation’s capital. Elsewhere, the storm system is expected to drop at least 10 inches of snow on New York and 18 inches in Philadelphia.
Of four flights scheduled Friday from Sea-Tac to Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport, three were canceled. Flights from Seattle to New York’s JFK airport operated on time Friday, according to the tracking service FlightView. However, Delta and American airlines have already canceled Saturday morning flights from Seattle to JFK.
