The Northeast is bracing for one of the biggest blizzards to hit since 1978, and flights are being cancelled in droves out of LAX, reports City News Service.

As of 6:00 a.m., 49 flights had been cancelled out of LAX, and 26 inbound flights had been called off.

The worst of the blizzard is expected to hit Boston this evening, reports CNN.com, with the area expecting up to two feet of snow. Vehicles won't be allowed on the roads at all after 4:00 p.m. today.

Many airlines are posting travel advisories on their websites. Southwest, for instance, tells passengers that it's cancelled flights in and out of Albany (ALB), Boston Logan (BOS), Buffalo/Niagara (BUF), Hartford (BDL), Long Island (ISP), Manchester (MHT), Newark (EWR), New York (LaGuardia) (LGA), Philadelphia (PHL) and Providence (PVD).
