What does 'support of swap' mean? Its being advertised as the reason for the current delay at PHL, JFK, TEB, EWR.

Just curious

SWAP actually stands for Severe Weather Avoidance Plan. If a line of storms is rendering several parallel airways useless, departures at an airport are stopped in that direction and this is an example of SWAP in action. Better to keep the planes waiting on the ground then having separation problems in the air and holding patterns everywhere.
