"It's not us; it's the other airports", said Burlington International Airport Aviation Director Gene Richards.

New Jersey: Nearly 550 flights at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) have been cancelled ahead of the fierce nor'easter storm that threatens the East coast of the United States.

About 587 flights were cancelled at LaGuardia Airport and are experiencing delays of about 15 minutes of less, the airport said.

The US National Weather Service (NWS) revised its forecast for NY around midday, predicting an increased 20 to 33 centimetres of snowfall on Wednesday, with up to 20 inches expected in more rural areas of NY state, New Jersey and CT. Some areas have been without power for days as utility crews and municipal crews work on downed trees and power lines.

Although the weather advisory took effect Tuesday evening for snow, New Yorkers woke up to wet streets.

The National Weather Service says the storm could leave over a foot of snow in some areas of Vermont, and New Hampshire.
