A major winter storm, the second to pummel the mid-west in the last two weeks, is now moving across the eastern U.S. and bringing with it a messy mix that is causing flight disruptions in many regions, including as much as a foot of snow to ski slopes in New England. Paul Walker, a meteorologist with AccuWeather Inc., said the storm has two halves, with one centered over Michigan and the other centered over New Jersey.
There have been delays of over an hour at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and at New York’s JFK International Airport. By 7:30 am Wednesday morning, as many as 266 flights had been cancelled were cancelled in the U.S. and in Toronto 166 arrivals and departures were cancelled. The snow is now mostly north of the border, with heavy snowfall in the states ranging from west Massachusetts to New Hampshire, and New York and Boston are due to get rain.
