Almost 800 Flights Reportedly Canceled in Chicago Area Due to Snowstorm

Almost 800 Flights Reportedly Canceled in Chicago Area Due to Snowstorm

A winter storm warning now is set to expire between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. for most of the Chicago area, earlier than when it first went into effect Thursday.

For the Niagara Frontier, total snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches are expected.

According to a NBC5 report, the potential snowstorm will likely start late Thursday and continue into Friday night, acculumating between 5 and 10 inches.

Snow is expected across the region and motorists should plan on slippery road conditions, especially for the evening commute today, the Weather Service said. It could drop up to 14 inches (36 cm) of snow in some areas, the National Weather Service said. FlightAware reports Southwest has canceled almost 330 flights scheduled for Friday, more than any other major carrier. The snow began falling early this morning and it's expected to just get worse as the day progresses, if they are right.

Chicago was in the bullseye of a heavy winter storm that threatened to dump a foot of snow in some areas around the Great Lakes by Friday night, wreaking havoc on travelers, closing schools and forcing the cancellation of hundreds of flights nationwide.

About 1,050 USA flights were canceled, with about one in five flights into or out of Chicago and Detroit airports called off, according to FlightAware.com, which tracks airline traffic.

Chicago Midway, which is an operating base for Southwest Airlines, has already canceled more than 50 percent of Friday's scheduled flights.

Don't look, but another winter storm is coming. Eight inches was reported in parts of northern IL and up to about 6 inches was reported the Chicago area.

About 23 million Americans are under winter weather alerts as an arctic front pushes from Montana through the Midwest, CNN meteorologists said.
