Heavy rain and air traffic delays spread across the U.S. East Coast from a storm that lashed the South and Midwest with tornadoes and flooding.

New York City, under a flood watch from Wednesday afternoon until noon Thursday, may receive as much as 4 inches of rain, according to the National Weather Service.

The path of the storm front will cause air traffic delays and some cancellations in the eastern U.S., said Gary Best, a meteorologist with Hometown Forecast Services in New Hampshire.

Across the U.S., 668 flights were scrubbed as of 3:54 p.m. (EDT) with Philadelphia International Airport most affected, said FlightAware, a Houston-based airline tracking company.
