Boston Logan International Airport says it is preparing for the winter storm arriving overnight and expected to affect the area Monday into early Tuesday.

The Massachusetts Port Authority, which operates Logan, said crews will be working through the storm to keep it open unless conditions make snow removal operations unsafe.

The agency said airlines are cancelling flights ahead of the storm and delays are likely.

Massport said most domestic and international carriers will have limited operations Monday and into Tuesday, but passengers should check with their airlines.

Around a foot of snow is expected to fall in Boston on Monday.
