NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The Northeast is bracing for a storm that could throw off travel plans not only on the east coast, but around the nation.

A potentially “historic and destructive” nor’easter is expected to plow north through New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts — including New York City and Boston — starting Monday and could cripple travel in the region.

Authorities have issued winter storm and blizzard warnings. Forecasts are calling for between 1 and 2 feet of snow.

A storm of that size would likely shut down arrivals and departures from important airports, causing a ripple effect.

If you’re traveling this week, here’s what you need to know:

American Airlines and U.S. Airways: The airlines will let customers flying to or from two dozen Northeast airports rebook reservations made for Monday and Tuesday without a fee. The cities include Albany, Baltimore, Boston, New York, Newark, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. More from American. More from U.S. Airways.
