airport snowU.S. is expecting an historic blizzard for New York City and surrounding areas between coastal New Jersey and Connecticut. The U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) issued a blizzard warning of two days of winter storms across the East Coast, from Pennsylvania to Maine.

Airlines have canceled more than 2,300 flights so far. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has warned of potentially "the biggest snowstorm in the history of this city," urging residents to stay off the roads.

As light snow began falling on the East Coast on Monday morning, last-minute shoppers grabbed supplies.

The biggest snowfall on record in New York City came during the storm of Feb. 11-12, 2006, dropping 26.9 inches (68 cm), according to the city's Office of Emergency Management.

Service at Boston’s Logan International Airport was expected to end around 7 p.m. EST on Monday, with carriers planning to move all planes out of the airport before the worst of the storm, officials said.

"Tuesday we'll be left with keeping this airport open as best we can and trying to stay ahead of this storm," Edward Freni, director of aviation, told reporters.
