Airlines are allowing itinerary changes as the region braces for a March nor’easter expected to bring significant snowfall to much of the state.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Watch for Massachusetts from Monday through Wednesday, with possible heavy snow and wind.

“Due to expected weather conditions, passengers are advised to check with their airline on the status of their flight before coming to the airport,” Massport wrote in a weather advisory on its website, and provided a link to the flight status page for Logan International Airport.

On Tuesday morning, there were 19 delays and 148 cancellations at Logan Airport by 8:30 a.m., according to flight-tracking website FlightAware
