Spring may be almost here, but another nor’easter – the fourth this month – is still set to cause travel disruptions across the northeastern United States and New England. Major airlines are issuing change waivers in anticipation.

According to the latest forecast from Accuweather, the slow-moving storm system will bring an extended period of wet snow or wintery mix from the eastern part of the Ohio Valley to the upper part of the Delmarva Peninsula and New Jersey from Tuesday into Wednesday night. From northern Ohio to northern Pennsylvania and into much of the Hudson Valley and central New England, there may be little accumulation of snow despite low temperatures.

Customers on American Airlines scheduled to travel March 20 – 21 can rebook through March 25 between the same city pair in the same cabin (or pay the difference).
