When?

Of course we do not know the exact facts yet, but it would seem safe to say that the weather conditions at least contributed to the final result of runway excursion.
When will the JFK airports start concerning themselves more with safety rather than getting sued.
They never give you any information about the runway conditions or breaking actions, except for pilot reports and that is only useful if someone had landed recently and was able to give an accurate report.

Television now shows the nose of the plane elevated on a ridge of snow(?) that has it nose up and tail down, and nose is up against a fence. Passsengers evacuating using overwing exits and slide.

Platinum Flyer: that's not a ridge of snow - it looks like the levee/berm that separate the runway from Flushing Bay - at the end of RW 13. Or - it may have slid off the North side of the runway and ended up against the berm that separates the runway from the East River. Quite a ride for sure.

Delta now reporting it's an MD-88

That's the same spot (I believe) that US Air 405 went into Flushing Bay back in 1992.

Looks like it slid off the left side of the runway (north) and hit the East River berm.

Had it slid off the right (south) - it would have headed towards the terminal and parked aircraft.

What happened to the nose gear? Or at least the tracks that a nose gear would have left in the snow?

some news reports are suggesting that the berm is the one at the SE end of the runway.., not the one at the side.

they are also suggesting that this indicates a possible downwind landing

winds at LGA have been NW to NE over the last few hours

Considering the weather we've had in the area the past couple of days, this comes as no surprise. (Snow, ice, sleet) All other area airports (JFK, Westchester and Newark/Liberty are experiencing delays of up to 3 hours because of the weather.)

that's definitely the berm on the NE side of the runway. Looks like the aircraft slid down the berm a bit - taking out the fence as it slid down the berm.
