NORFOLK - If you had plans to go north this weekend, you likely won't be able to get there by plane or train, and driving could be a problem, too.

The Northeast is poised for up to three feet of snow. The snow has already begun in some areas, with the heaviest amounts falling at night and into Saturday.

Boston could get up to 3 feet of snow, while New York City was expecting 10 to 14 inches. To the south, Philadelphia was looking at a possible 2 to 5 inches.

At Norfolk International Airport, some flights had been cancelled.

'We are experiencing some cancellations to the New York airports and Boston. Otherwise, we're good to go right now,' spokesman Wayne Shank told

It's a similar situation at Newport News-Williamsburg.

'It's really important to check with the airlines before you head out to make sure your flight is on. You'll save yourself a lot of heaches,' spokeswoman Jessica Wharton advised.

Amtrak alerts say Northeast trains will stop running Friday afternoon.

In New England, this could prove to be among the top 10 snowstorms in history.
