Lousy Smarch Weather: 3700+ Flights Cancelled

The New York Daily News reports:

The fourth New York City nor’easter of the month arrived Wednesday, bringing the familiar litany of woe: Massive airport delays, whipping winds and the threat of up to 15 inches of snow.

The first flakes began falling during the morning rush hour, with the effects felt immediately at La Guardia, Kennedy and Newark Airports — a staggering 3700 flights canceled by 8:30 a.m., according to FlightAware.com.

Officials warned all service at La Guardia was likely to shut down later in the day as the storm worsened, and most flights from all three airports will be impacted as the winds gust to more than 50 mph. “This is a serious storm, not be taken lightly,” said Gov. Cuomo at a morning briefing. “It’s going to get worse. It’s a good day to stay home.”
