The winter storm that is expected to hammer the South over the next 24 hours is causing disruptions in commercial airline schedules, including flights from Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

With winter storm warnings in effect from Texas to the Carolinas coast, both Delta Airlines and US Airways say they are relaxing the restrictions on passengers who reschedule flights.

Delta, with a major hub in Atlanta, already has announced a number of flight cancellations Tuesday morning.

And as of 7:20 a.m., US Airways already had announced cancellations of Tuesday morning flights to Houston, Wilmington, Baton Rouge, La., and Florence, S.C.
