Wind, Whiteout Conditions Ground Flights At JFK Airport

More Than 3000 Flights Cancelled As Winter Storm Grayson Descends on the East Coast

After leaving a wake of delays and cancellations in the southeast yesterday, the first winter storm of 2018 is packing enough punch to cancel more than 1,000 flights in NY and Boston today, sending ripple effects throughout the U.S.

The flights affected are BW015 and BW014.

De Blasio declared a Winter Weather Emergency during the news conference, emphasising Grayson is a "a very serious storm" and warning residents to stay indoors.

Another 82 flights were scratched for Friday, though that number could rise later in the day depending on the severity of the storm.

It says full refunds will be allowed on tickets issued for travel to or from NY between January 4 and 6.

Make sure to check your airlines before heading to the airport to see if flights have been changed.

New York's JFK Airport was closed last night due to the snowy "bomb cyclone" that hit the city, bringing with it sub-zero temperatures, strong winds and heavy snowfall. "Travelers are urged to contact their airline carriers for updates on resumption of service", the airport tweeted.

Parts of Queens County received more than 13 inches of snow and sustained winds of more than 40 miles per hour Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. Today, one out of three JetBlue fights and 22 percent of United's flights are canceled.

By 11 a.m., airlines had already canceled 233 flights Friday, according to FlightAware.

Bradley International Airport is open and operating. Additional cancellations are possible as the storm moves north.
