Dont have much information but ISP is closed until 10 am on 1-Jan due to wind.

Anybody know about diversions? Cancellations? When the closure started?

This is from WCBS880, a local traffic site:
Bulletins LONG ISLAND MAC ARTHUR AIRPORT CLOSED ++ UNTIL TEN O'CLOCK TOMORROW MORNING (01/01/09) ++ DUE TO HIGH WINDS AND WEATHER CONDITIONS

Happy new year!

Are the winds that bad? What are the recorded gusts?

I am one of the crew members stuck in ISP, and I think the biggest reason for the closure is the fact the the Crosswind Component for a contaminated runway is exceeded.

Ding! We have a winner!

Normal crosswind limits are around 30-35 knots depending upon the aircraft type, but toss in degraded braking action and limits of 10, or 5 kts. can more readily be exceeded, thus no ops...

Did neither of the shorter runways favor the wind? If it was strong enough to exceed limits on the main runway and was blowing down one of the 5,000ft. runways you'd think at least an RJ could get in.

I spoke to my sister this morning, she said the winds were blowing hard most of the night.
Oh, and it's cold there too.  cold 

I have family on Southwest Flight 120 which took off just a few minutes ago (according to flightaware.com)

Happy New Year all !

The strongest wind at KISP was at 6am from the northwest, 310 at 27 knots. As of 1pm, the wind was gusting to 24 knots, but that has been it for the last 12 hours.

New Year's eve from mid afternoon through about 2 AM along the South Coast of New England and presumabley L.I. it blew like hell with sideways snow. I wouldn't want to be landing or taking off in anything, anywhere during that stretch.
