[This post has been updated]

We're in for another bout of snowfall tonight, which could make life difficult if you need to catch a plane tonight or Friday.

American Airlines, Delta and US Airways have all issued travel waivers in anticipation of the snowfall that is expected to move across the Northeast Thursday night and Friday.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for parts of the Washington region from 9 tonight through 9 a.m. Friday. Frederick, Howard and Baltimore counties are included in the advisory, which indicates the possibility of 1 to 3 inches of snow. One to two inches of snow is possible in other areas.

Winter weather advisories are also in effect for New York from 9 tonight through 9 a.m. Friday and Philadelphia from 7 tonight to 7 a.m. Friday.

Other airlines haven't followed Delta and America yet but that is likely to change throughout the day based on experience with recent storms. If you're planning on flying Friday, you should check with your airline to see if your travel plans may be affected by
