Airlines make preparations for expected winter storm Thursday

At least one airline is taking a proactive approach for an expected winter storm that may hit the Garden State Thursday.



Delta Airlines says it is keeping an eye on two dozen cities that could be impacted.



The airline says that any travelers who wished to cancel their trip because a flight gets canceled or faces a delay of 90 minutes or more may be entitled to a refund for the part of the ticket that was not used.



Delta says that even if the flight is not canceled, travelers can make a one-time change to the ticket without a fee if they are traveling to, from or through one of the cities that may be impacted by the weather, including Newark.



A complete list of the cities impacted can be found at Delta's website.



Delta says that the ticket has to be re-issued on or before Feb. 12 and must be used by that date.



News 12 New Jersey meteorologist say the winter storm is expected to begin by daybreak Thursday morning. 



Although it is too early to tell how much snow New Jersey may get, forecasters say there is a potential for a considerable amount of accumulation.
