Talking advice for flight in 2 days...lga-pbi

i have a flight booked in 2 days from lga-pbi and returning monday, but the weather is going to be miserable in pbi this weekend...the flight i don't believe will get cancelled, but we will be hotel ridden for 3 days, and don't really wanna go anymore. if i call JetBlue, since i am cancelling, i know its 75 per person cancellation charge correct? do i get any of the money back or credit for a future flight? we don't really want to rebook at this point since we don't know when/where we want to go right now

thanks

is the Gulf Coast also gonna be rained out? If not why not fly into PBI and then drive to Naples or wherever

I have a res for next week myself and theres another couple of possible storms that might take hold. Being a Mosaic I can CX for $0 and it simply goes into my travel bank for future tkts, but if it will be nice on the Gulf side I will simply drive over there

Travel bank credit minus the cancel fee.

You can, it will go directly to your travel bank minus cancellation fees.

You should wait until the last minute, in case JetBlue issues a travel advisory due to the weather, which will waive fees.

Won't they likely consider a full refund under these circumstances?

If there is a waiver in place, they will generally waive the cancellation fee. I don't recall if they'll do an actual refund to the original form of payment, but it can go into a Travel Bank for sure
