By Brendan O’Brien (Reuters) – A potential blizzard was heading toward a wide swath of the U.S. East Coast on Sunday, prompting weather alerts and storm warnings from New Hampshire to Philadelphia, the National Weather Service said. A blizzard watch will go into effect on Monday afternoon for Boston and New York City, where the government’s severe weather website warned residents of a “potentially historic storm” that may bring up to 2 feet (61 cm) of snow.

American Airlines has canceled a handful of flights, including a Monday flight from New York’s John F.
