JFK is a Disaster!

So many aircraft on the ground and so many delays. Some of these aircraft have been on the ground for more than 3 hours!! The storms on the east coast must be responsible.

New Yorkers, whats the weather like right now? I’m only getting light showers.

Boston is doing just fine.

The weather’s pretty bad. It’s pouring and there’s a tornado warning.

Wow! Only western Mass is under a tornado watch but nothing wrong with the east.

honestly the rain today has been pathetic. I’ve been in NJ for the most part but it only rained for about 1 hour at around 3 PM…

there’s thunder right now which might be contributing to residual delays?

Some planes and leaving and some planes are just sitting on an inactive runway. They’ve been there for hours.

I was listening to my local airport live ATC on my way home from work. I am about 100mi WSW of NYC. Some planes heard to Newark were told they were closed so I tuned into kewr tower a bit later. Sounded like they were open then but incoming planes were reporting windshear and requesting turns to prepare for go around.
