The view at John F. Kennedy International Airport as a major snowstorm moves into New York City on Monday, Jan. 26, 2015.

Dozens of flights between Las Vegas and the Philadelphia-to-Boston corridor were cancelled today as the Northeast braces for a powerful winter storm expected to dump as much as 3 feet of snow.

According to McCarran International Airport’s website, more than 40 inbound and outbound flights have been cancelled for New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Boston.

The airport listed 11 arrival cancellations and 30 departure cancellations as of 10:30 a.m.

Airport spokeswoman Christine Crews advised travelers to monitor flights closely, even if they don’t plan to travel to or from the Northeast.

“If you’re flying to San Francisco but your plane was coming in from Boston, your flight may be cancelled,” Crews said. “A weather event of this magnitude affects a lot of flights.”

Flight delays and cancellations are expected through Tuesday, Crews said.
