NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Heavy snow has forced the closure of two major New York-area airports.
The Federal Aviation Administration website says Newark Liberty International is expected to reopen to flights at noon Thursday. Kennedy airport is expected to open at 10 a.m. Thursday.
LaGuardia Airport remains open, but with some delays.
The New York area received up to 18 inches of snow in a storm that stretched from early Wednesday until nearly dawn Thursday.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the three airports, is hoping to avoid the situation that accompanied an even bigger storm on Dec. 26. Then, flights were backed up for days.
