NEW YORK - A fast-moving snowstorm brought several inches of snow to the New York City region Friday forcing the cancellation of hundreds of flights at JFK, LaGuardia and Newark-Liberty international airports.
The snow was likely only part of the problem the airlines were facing as staffing shortages had been reported in recent days due to the spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus.

New York City was expected to receive more than six inches of snow once the storm moved out of the region.
