I am flying to JFK tomorrow on Delta arriving at 1630hrs EST. Should I count on being stuck in ATL, due to the weather in NY? How do these delays work? Should I be worried about not making it? Opinions please?

Temps will be above freezing for the city and south this evening then it will change over to rain. Im going out for my birthday dinner in midtown this evening, so mother nature better not spoil my party.
its going to be close though... Atlanta (city) is showing rain, but the northern suburbs where i am (near PDK) they are calling for ice
Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

Accumulations will be light...with just a dusting expected in most places through 500 PM EST. Motorists are urged to slow down and use caution. http://www.wunderground.com/US/GA/Atlanta.html

That figures....we need rain, not friggin snow/sleet/ice.
uhmm.. all 3 gives you water.. which is what Atlanta needs right now.. and at least with snow/sleet/ice.. you get to actually collect the water and not have it running out all over the place.. I think ATL should be happy if someone spits on the ground at this point.. it might be messy, but ya'll need it and should be happy for it any way you can get it.. be real now!
