NYC airspace basically falls apart during thunderstorms. Or snow. Or light rain in Nebraska.

Evening is not the time to fly domestic out of JFK if you can avoid it. It’s international departure rush hour and widebody aircraft generate more wake turbulence, meaning that smaller aircraft then need to wait longer to take off, further slowing things down.
