Delta has preemptively issued a weather waiver for New York City area airports potentially affected by storms tomorrow, Tuesday, August 13.

The National Weather Service issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook warning, “Severe thunderstorm development is possible Tuesday and Tuesday night. The primary threats are damaging winds and large hail. There is also a flash flood threat for the area, with torrential rainfall likely in any storms that develop.”

That doesn’t sound pleasant.
