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.

Travelers with plans to fly on Tuesday or Wednesday should start thinking about a Plan B in case their flight gets canceled.

Southwest Airlines, which carries more domestic passengers than any other airline, doesn't expect to operate any flights Tuesday at 14 airports stretching from Washington to Portland, Maine.

According to a CNBC report, more than a thousand flights have been cancelled or delayed across the country as airlines brace for the storm.

American Airlines Flight 3520 to Chicago, scheduled to depart at 11:02 a.m.

American Airlines Flight 3509 from Chicago, scheduled to land at 8:58 p.m.

The cancellations come before the major storm that is expected to sweep the Granite State on Tuesday. Providence and Manchester (NH) are both past the 40% cancellation mark, almost a quarter of flights from Hartford have been scrapped, and New York's LaGuardia and D.C.'s Reagan National are also already both creeping towards the 20% cancellation mark for tomorrow - and all those numbers go up on every refresh, too.

The New York area was under a blizzard warning with snowfall of as much as 24 inches (61 centimeters) and wind gusts of up to 55 miles per hour (88 kilometers per hour) expected on Tuesday.
