Weather delays affect some airports in the East

11:40 a.m.: According to FAA flight data, New York's major hub airports LaGuardia and Newark-Liberty International are currently experiencing weather-related delays of about 30 minutes for arriving planes. The problem is low cloud cover, which reduces visibility for landings.

Cloudy weather is holding up arriving planes at Philadelphia International Airport by 47 minutes, according to the FAA. Elsewhere, Miami International Airport has 15-minute departure delays because of thunderstorms.

However, the weather effect appears to be minimal on a nationwide basis. Flight schedules are not as heavy in the mid-afternoon period. But delays could grow worse if weather deteriorates as airline traffic picks up in the late afternoon hours.
