At 3:20 p.m., the airport tweeted that fog was still a problem and that passengers should check with their airlines for any delays.
The FAA canceled the ground stop at 5 p.m., the airport tweeted.
National Weather Service officials put out a special weather statement for motorists at 11:20 a.m., reporting Mecklenburg and surrounding counties are experiencing patchy and dense fog along the Interstate 85 corridor. The warning will remain in effect through much of the early afternoon hours, officials said.
