Travel around New York could be slower than usual due to winter weather moving across parts of the state.

A major winter storm is moving across the southern part of New York State and will end up dropping several inches of snow across the New York City region which could have a big impact on airline travel today.

New York City is looking at its biggest one-day snowfall total in over three years and that will impact flights into and out of the city's airports.


At the time of this writing, around 40% of flights taking off at JKF airport were delayed while at LaGuardia airport, most flights are on time but several have been canceled including a morning flight to Buffalo, New York.

Also travel in and around New York City will be slower than usual.

While the busiest of the Empire State's airports are located in the Metropolitan New York area of "Downstate," our "Upstate" region has some pretty significant airports as well. I am sure you can all guess what are the Number 1, 2, 3 and maybe even the #4 busiest airports in Upstate. But the list gets very interesting by the time you get to Number 8, 9, and 10!

(The list is ranked by "enplanements," which is a fancy word used by the Federal Aviation Administration in referring to the number of passessegers who board an airplane.)
