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.

This weather waiver is valid only for Delta Air Lines-marketed flights on August 13 through the below airports:

  • Kennedy (JFK)
  • LaGuardia (LGA)
  • Newark (EWR)
  • Newburgh (SWF)
  • White Plains (HPN)

Tickets must be issued on or before August 16, with rebooked travel commencing no later than the 16th, as well.

Passengers may make a one-time change without being assessed a fee, though fare differences may apply.
