A storm system moving across the United States is expected to bring heavy rain and damaging winds to the Northeast Wednesday night into Thursday, causing possible flight delays and cancellations across the region.
According to AccuWeather.com, meteorologists said the storm will strike between Washington D.C. and Boston Wednesday evening and continue throughout Thursday. The thunderstorms are expected to dump almost half an inch of rain by 8 a.m. ET Thursday morning.
The same storm system already created havoc in the Midwest and in the Plains to start the week, with wind gusts in Oklahoma Sunday night reaching an astounding 75 miles per hour.
With the heavy rain, thunderstorms and high winds expected throughout the Northeast, airline delays are expected, with some carriers already waiving change fees for passengers scheduled to fly in or out of impacted airports.
Delta Air Lines has proactively issued a weather waiver for airports in Washington, D.C., Boston and New York City as a result of likely Airport Traffic Control initiatives such as ground delays.
The weather waiver allows Delta customers traveling to, from or through the impacted cities on Wednesday to make a one-time change to their travel plans without a fee. Eligible passengers must rebook their flights before July 1 for travel no later than July 1.
As the storm system moves across the U.S., more airlines could begin issuing waivers.
