    Heavy snow was blamed for causing numerous travel delays on Thanksgiving Day and now airlines are expecting travel waivers in the east of the country.

    Weather forecasters warn New Your City may be covered in 1-4 inches of snow, the NY Post reported on Saturday.

    Up to 4 inches of snow is expected to cover the five boroughs of the city and also Long Island.

    "The city's fleet of 705 salt spreaders are loaded and ready to go", Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia assured, adding that "1,500 plows will be deployed once two inches of the white stuff accumulates".

    She cautioned, however, that residents of the city should prepare for a tough storm.

    According to the Weather Channel, the snow in the northeast of the country will last until Tuesday.

    Due to the coming snowstorm, major airlines are reported to be providing waivers allowing flyers to switch flights for free in the east of the country.
