NEW YORK (AP) — A winter storm that lashed parts of the Northeast with snow is delaying flights at the New York metropolitan area's major airports and causing power outages in the region.

The Federal Aviation Administration says as of Thursday afternoon, some planes were arriving about an hour late at LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy and Newark airports because of wind.

A few thousand customers lost power on Long Island and in parts of New York City, Long Island and Westchester County at the height of the weather. About 1,200 were still without electricity by midafternoon Thursday.

There were no major problems on the roadways. Subway, bus and rail service also was normal.

The storm brought heavy rain and wind to the metropolitan area. The weather was expected to improve Thursday evening and Friday.
