United Airlines will stop flying planes out of Dulles International Airport in the Washington, D.C. metro area, and a few other airports ahead of an upcoming massive snow storm.

The airline says it will stop flights on Friday afternoon and hopes to resume some operations on Sunday.

For passengers booked on northeast flights, United is providing information to those customers.

The Washington metro area is expected to be hit by upwards of 24 inches of snow over the next 48 hours.

Meteorologists are calling for even more snow in the Washington suburbs, which could experience upwards of 30 inches of snow.
