Well the only positive in operational terms is that the storm will be at peak intensity on a Tuesday in late January. There will be far fewer people traveling than if this would have hit during the Thanksgiving rush, or even than if this would have been back-to-back days of bad thunderstorms up and down the East Coast on a Thursday and Friday in July.

A lot of pilot and flight attendant lines are pretty low time in January anyway (compared to other months), so it will be much easier to beef up coverage than it would be in the summer. Now of course getting to work will be a mess, but at least extra coverage will help speed the recovery once the roads are back open.

Quoting Sooner787 (Reply 47):
but does a blizzard like this effect Amtrak as well?

Yes, it does. Low visibility slows things down, operations to remove snow from switches to ensure safe operation will delay trains, etc. Like the airlines, Amtrak also has to deal with crews being unable to report to work. Platforms at outdoor stations have to be cleared of snow. Here's a blurb from their site explaining some of the things they're doing to prepare, and it gives an idea of the kinds of challenges they anticipate:

"Equipment Positioning – To more quickly respond to potential problems, diesel locomotives and on-track maintenance equipment are strategically positioned in designated locations along the Northeast Corridor. Should downed trees or limbs disable the overhead electrical system, diesel power can help move trains when it is safe to do so, and on-track equipment can be dispatched to make any necessary infrastructure repairs.
Tree Trimming Crews – To supplement standard coverage, independent contractors are on standby to quickly respond to reports of trees or limbs down along the right-of-way, which could damage the overhead electrical system or prevent safe passage of trains. Amtrak engages in a regular year-round tree trimming program to proactively minimize such impacts.


Additional Staffing – Mechanical, engineering and operations forces are mobilizing additional crews to ensure safe and efficient operation of the railroad. Additional on-board staff are also on standby and ready to respond should a re-crewing need arise."

Amtrak does much better and just normal snow they can run pretty much normally. This storm though will effect Amtrak if it ends up as they are predicting because of the strong winds and such high amounts of snow. The winds are suppose to be very strong and snow rifts will be deep and visibility will be very limited with blowing snow cause white outs. Amtrak will have problems they still have to be able to see and this storm will be creating white out conditions plus they are saying 2-4 inches an hour at times, you have almost no visibility when its snowing this hard not even factoring in the hurricane strength winds.

The NY and Boston weather people are really committing to this storm being huge, I guess nothing but to sit back and see. For anyone who needs to get into NYC or Boston I hope you are flying tomorrow!

Looks like UA has shuttered PHL north thru Maine and within about 100 miles of the coast for Tues....pretty much as other carriers. Would suspect that there will be cancels going into the area tonight for everyone to avoid overnight aircraft. South of that appear to be business as usual....Washington DC and south. Transatlantic carriers will have to cncl or will have to overfly to Ohio or DC (or farther) to get out of it. I'm thinking the word 'diversion' may apply for a bit...grin.

Well with all due respect, I remember a couple of years ago there was another warning like this ( I opened a thread about that storm here ), they even called that one "Frankestorm".... and nothing special happened, just another big storm with a lot of snow, nothing enough to freak out the people of New York or Boston. Let's hope this one is just another big monster that becomes a kitty cat....

One big problem will be the inability of airport, airline and support persons as well as travelers from getting to/from the airports as roads and rail services become unable to operate in heavy snow. This is expected to be the worst snowstorm since 2006 in the NYC metro area.
I wonder if some international flights may be if not cancelled, but diverted to IAD, BAL, PIT and other airports to the east and south to get around this superstorm.
To make things worse, temperatures are expected to stay below frezzing, perhaps at record or near-record lows into next week, making clean up and recovery even more difficult.

SQ25 departing JFK on Monday night 26th Jan. has had its departure time moved up to 16:00 local time from 20:25 per the SQ website. Looks like it will be one long layover in Frankfurt for the transit on to Singapore (at least 6 hours by my calculation) on the 27th. I'm sure SQ will look after the passengers going all the way to Singapore. Has to be interesting trying to notify everyone though that their flight is 4 and a half hours earlier now.

First time I've ever seen an airline move a departure time up, particularly that much.

Not really its the wind that will make this so paralyzing they are saying plus the density in the NYC area makes it so difficult. Its tough to get everyone off the roads and then those stuck cars make plowing take so much longer etc

New York has excellent equipment to tackle this storm the wind is what could really cause a huge problem. Lets hope for less wind and snow drifts.

The 2010 storm was pretty bad and we got back moving pretty quickly. I really hope jetblue has better plans in place to tackle this storm since both of its hubs are about to go offline and with how full planes are its so hard to rebook.

...as well as allowing for much faster clearing/plowing of the ramps. There will probably be arrivals landing before the irrop'd departures can get back on schedule and having available, open gates will help the gate congestion problem.

BWI should be fine, and so should DCA. It's not going to be cold enough either place for much to accumulate. It's 37 degrees F at DCA right now, and while it's snowing lightly nothing's sticking.

Some of the outer suburbs, particularly eastern Long Island, could see 30+ inches, while the city proper is "only" expecting 12-24 inches.

Airlines have gotten much better lately about pro-actively planning for inclement weather and adjusting schedules ahead of time to prevent planes from getting stranded. This storm has been forecast for several days, giving the airlines plenty of time to send planes out of affected cities on revenue flights and not have new ones come in.

That said, my WN flight BNA-LGA I decided not to take this morning not only operated, but actually landed 15 minutes early. I'm sure they turned that plane around quickly and got it back out of there before the storm hits this afternoon.

AF has already posted cancellations for today (2 of the 3 flights, only the one due to land in 1/2 hour and take off at 4.15 PM is operating and nothing after that).
It is more simple to cancel and have to deal with pax and re-routing the connecting pax at your home hub than it is to deal with 300 pax in an airport where an airline may or may not have enough gates and staff, with the pax still due to make it at final destination by chartered buses and such, on questionably open freeways.
Pax connecting at JFK (for AF/DL these are normally few) likely won't have major issues to be rerouted through ATL or DTW or other hubs. Those for which JFK was final destination would not make it home easily anyway, regardless of their point of arrival into the US.
When I doubt... go running!

Airports will be closing but not the air space to the best of my knowledge. Which brings me to ask how places like New York Center will handle the storm. Do they take measures to address the possibility that staff may be unable to report for duty such as putting them up in nearby hotels?

I figure some transit traffic will have to take a slight diversion if enough airports are closed that there are insufficient enroute diversion options, but I doubt all the traffic will need to be rerouted.

It's been interesting watching air traffic in/out of NYC today. Clearing out slowly.

I do think this storm is more than a little over-hyped. It looks like the bulk of it is going to track further East of NYC. It's possible NYC could get less than half of the 22+ or so inches I've heard predicted.

Amazing they're shutting down all the tunnels, etc.

There's practically nothing going on outside weatherwise right now. A little light powder.

We'll see if we get the blizzard later tonight I guess.

Right now it seems like a massive overreaction. Everybody fled the City and nothing happened.

I checked a few of the webcams around NYC at about 2200 EST and not much of anything other than light traffic dusting of snow and not much wind.
Unless I overlooked, there does not seem to be a webcam at KJFK.

I think the overnight is what they are worried about but the radar does not look that bad right now.

Looks more like a case of 'giving people plenty of notice,' wjcandee. Apparently the worst of the storms will hit overnight and Tuesday morning?

•Hazard types: Heavy snow and blowing snow, with blizzard conditions.
•Accumulations: 20 to 30 inches with locally higher amounts. Especially across Long Island and Connecticut.
•Snowfall rates, 2 to 4 inches per hour late tonight into Tuesday morning.
•Winds: north 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 55 mph. Gusts up to 70 mph possible across extreme eastern Long Island.
•Visibilities: one quarter mile or less at times.

Hope all's well with you, and remains so!
