Yet again a line of thunderstorms has disrupted flights going into and out of airports in the Northeast. This has happened numerous times over the past few weeks as record-breaking heat has enveloped much of the nation. Flights at five of the region's busiest airports reported flight delays, including New York's John F. Kennedy Airport, which is a hub for Delta Airlines, JetBlue, and American Airlines. New York's other airports, LaGuardia and Newark Liberty were also experiencing delays.
South of New York, the three major airports serving the Washington and Baltimore region were also experiencing delays. Washington Dulles was experiencing delays of up to two hours. Washington National and Baltimore/Washington both had ground stops lifted, but there were still thunderstorms in the area. In the north, Boston was also reporting delays of up to 45 minutes. The ripple effects of these delays could affect cities in regions with calmer weather.
