It’s a familiar story this winter ... a winter storm to our north ... and a host of delays and cancellations of flights at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
The latest in a series of storms is moving across the Mid-Atlantic area Monday after battering the Midwest and Ohio Valley with snow, sleet and freezing rain Sunday.
And passengers are dealing with delays and flight cancellations at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
Snow was falling Monday afternoon in parts of West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
At 1:30 p.m., the Federal Aviation Administration reported all major airports are open and operating. But a number of flights have fallen victim to the bad weather. And several airports conducted temporary ground stops Monday morning, bringing departures and arrivals to a halt for short periods of time.
In the period between 10 a.m. and noon Monday, there were eight canceled departures and 14 cancellations among arriving flights in Charlotte.
Between 1 and 3 p.m., there were seven canceled departures and 13 canceled arrivals.
Airports in the Virginia Tidewater area, at Norfolk and Newport News, along with airports in the Baltimore-Washington area seem to be most heavily impacted Monday afternoon by the flight schedule changes.
