Spring may be here, but wintry weather is hanging on in the northeast with another snowstorm that’s disrupting flights across the region today. 

In the New York City area, LaGuardia Airport is reporting over 100 flight cancellations, and JFK Airport and Newark Airport are reporting a number of flight cancellations and disruptions as well. In Philadelphia, the airport is reporting light snow and sleet this morning, as well as delays into New York City. 

According to the latest forecast from Accuweather, the quick-moving snowstorm is expected to move through the mid-Atlantic and into southern New England Monday morning, with three to six inches of snow expected in communities along the storm’s path. That includes eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts on Monday morning, as well as wet and slushy conditions in Philadelphia and Boston
