ROMULUS (WWJ) – Several flights from Detroit Metropolitan Airport to the eastern U.S. coast have been canceled or delayed due to what some are calling the biggest snow storm to ever hit the New England states.

While metro Detroit was dusted with just a few inches of snow on the ground, forecasters are expecting the storm to dump up to three feet of snow from New York City to Boston and beyond Friday.

At Detroit Metro Airport Friday morning, visibility was considerably reduced as foggy conditions combined with sideways-blowing snow. While the heavy snow squalls hitting Romulus caused delays for southern and western traveling flights, the impending storm on the east coast caused airline officials to cancel many flights headed that way.

Reporting from Metro Airport, WWJ’s Mike Campbell said New York seems to be the hardest hit, with flights to Rochester, Syracuse, Buffalo and Elmira all being canceled. Departures to Newark, New Jersey and Des Moines, Iowa were also canceled.

Some flights that were scheduled to arrive in Detroit were also canceled Friday morning, including those from Buffalo, Flint, Saginaw and Pelston.

Airlines are asking that if passengers have flights to the eastern U.S. coast to check with them first on the status of their flight. You can also check the CBS Detroit DTW Airport Tracker to see current flight statuses.
