LOS ANGELES — Two ferocious storm systems are expected to converge across the Northeast on Friday — and spawn travel nightmares for a large swath of the country.

A wet subtropical system rising from the Gulf Coast will collide with a polar front rolling in from the Midwest to produce a potentially historic winter storm.

Transportation outlets were announcing shutdowns in the air and on land ahead of the storm’s arrival.

Airlines have already canceled more than 3,500 flights to and from the affected region, and Amtrak has canceled many trips in the Northeast corridor.

At least 50 arriving and departing flights have been canceled for Friday at Los Angeles International Airport,according to flight tracking website FlightAware.
