New York City is expected to see significant snowfall on Saturday.

The winter storm that brought snow to the deep South Friday is moving into the mid-Atlantic Friday evening and expected to bring the first snow of the season to the Northeast over the weekend.

All told, the storm will blanket a vast swatch of the country when it ends on Sunday.

The storm system wreaked havoc on the nation’s air system, causing over 6,000 delays and almost 2,000 flight cancellations on Friday nationwide. Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport reported over 1,000 delays and 1,200 flight cancellations and prospects for Saturday aren’t much better. As of 11:15 p.m. Friday night, the airport has already posted 400 cancellations for Saturday.

Other locations affected by the storm include Charlotte Douglas International, Louis Armstrong New Orleans, and Dallas/Fort Worth International airports.

Meanwhile, hazardous road conditions have been reported in the South and are expected in the Northeast as snow is expected to start to fall there in the early morning hours. Winter-storm warnings have been posted along the I-95 corridor from Virginia to Massachusetts although New York City and Philadelphia have only posted winter weather advisories.
