    NEW YORK, N.Y. - More than 1,700 flights have been cancelled at New York City's three major airports.

    Flight-tracking website FlightAware shows that Newark Liberty International has 674 cancellations, JFK 528 and LaGuardia 538 as of Friday morning.

    It says most domestic carriers will suspend operations between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Friday. They will resume sometime Saturday afternoon. International carriers may continue to operate.

    Airlines issued so-called "weather waivers," allowing passengers flying in the storm-affected areas to change their flight date without paying a change fee.

    Airlines try to get ahead of big storms by cancelling flights in advance.
