Windy skies

Landed at KJFK earlier on 22L and had headwind of 90kts even as low as 3000ft, made for a cool challenge! Anyone else get caught out tonight?

Most likely the weather wasn’t updating for your location. Although I’ve heard there is a storm around the New York area, I hope it isn’t that strong! 😂

There’s a tornado or something along the East coast, so pretty accurate.

KHPL was windy too.

Can confirm it is real windy in New York. We had a huge storm. Seems like a challenge I’m into!
