(NECN: Josh Brogadir, Boston, Mass.) - That rare Christmas snowfall headed for the Southeast has airlines already canceling some flights, including some out of New England.
A rare white Christmas is predicted for parts of the Southeast.
Winter weather advisories are in effect from Arkansas to the Carolinas and from West Virginia to central Alabama. Much of North Carolina is under a winter storm warning.
The National Weather Service says the storm could bring more than five inches of snow to the Washington region.
The wintry weather is the result of a low pressure system moving along the Gulf coast.
