Midwest storms may mire flights
Some 500 flights were canceled in Denver Tuesday morning as a snow-lashing storm
moved across the nation’s midland, so expect ripple effects at Sea-Tac and airports across the nation. Temperatures in Denver plummeted from Monday’s 71 degrees to this morning’s low of 16, with a reported wind-chill effect of -14.
Snow was lighter than expected at Denver — about five inches — so the airport may recover quickly, though deicing was delaying outbound flights. Up to two feet of snow is expected in the Dakotas, moving into Minnesota tonight. Rough weather, including hail and tornadoes in some areas, extends as far south as Dallas.
As always, check with your airline on your flight’s status before heading for the airport.
