As snow storms batter the Northeast, 45 flights already canceled at JIA

If you're trying to get to the Northeast or Mid-Atlantic area from North Florida Tuesday, not even a horse and buggy's going to help.

A total of 45 Tuesday flights were canceled as of Monday evening at the Jacksonville International Airport, according to flight-tracking website FlightAware.

As a Nor'easter bears down on the northeastern states - potentially dropping more than a foot of snow on some parts - air travel is expected to be snarled. Twenty-two percent of flights into - and 23 percent of flights out of - JIA are canceled. 

Parts of eight states are under a National Weather Service blizzard warning into Tuesday evening, says a NBC News report.

All flights from Baltimore/Washington International, Philadelphia International and Boston Logan International are canceled. Several flights out of New York are also canceled.

Going out of Jacksonville, all flights into Newark, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and several our of New York are also canceled.

If you're headed to the Northeast this week, it may be a good idea to check with your airline.

We will keep you updated as flight times change and if there are more cancellations. To hear more about the storms hitting the Northeast, head over to NBC News.
