Flights into Newark Liberty Airport were delayed by an average of four hours, according to FlightAware. Delays at LaGuardia were minimal Tuesday afternoon, according to the flight-tracking website.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the tri-state area Tuesday, which projected snow and sleet accumulations of two to three inches and wind gusts of up to 30 miles per hour.
