Delta has issued weather waiver for Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and 28 Northeast airports, including New York's LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International Airports, ahead of projected winter weather on Tuesday and Wednesday.

This waiver will allow customers traveling to, from or through any of the outlined cities on these days to make a one-time change to their travel plans without incurring a fee.

The largest potential for operational impact will be at the airline's hub in Atlanta, where Delta's team of meteorologists is currently forecasting a potential for up to half of an inch of snowfall on Tuesday, beginning in the late morning hours and continuing into the afternoon.

Additionally, as temperatures drop into the 20s on Tuesday evening, melting snow is expected to freeze and create a potential for icy roads in the Atlanta metropolitan area through Wednesday morning. 

The airline's meteorologists will continue to monitor the weather system and update forecasts to support other teams in Delta's Operations and Customer Center as they work to help the airline's teams on the ground assess potential operational impacts and tactically manage the winter weather to best serve Delta's customers.

Customers are encouraged to check their flight status on or the Fly Delta Mobile App. Customers can also get updates sent directly to their mobile device or by email with One-Time Flight Notification.
