Newark (EWR) Weather Delays

March 15, 2018

If your arrival to this hub was delayed in 2015 or 2016, there was an almost 6 in 10 chance it was due to weather.

Sure, snowstorms and the occasional summer thunderstorm can cause problems, but you might be surprised to learn it’s the wind that creates issues most frequently at this airport.

Two of Newark’s three runways are oriented southwest to northeast. Since west to northwest crosswinds are common, this is can be a frequent problem, even on sunny days. Winds can create headaches for pilots attempting to land, which is why you may see planes circling EWR on a picture-perfect afternoon.
