Storm Cancels Thousands Of Flights
The nasty mix of ice and snow that blanketed the Southeast on the weekend is expected to linger through Monday, cancelling thousands of flights and causing a ripple through the whole system. Charlotte Douglas International Airport appeared to be the hardest hit major airport. Although the temperature increased to just above freezing late Sunday, it was supposed to drop by early morning and allow a new dump of snow and freezing rain to coat the area. A winter storm advisory is in effect until 2 p.m. on Monday and if big airports like Charlotte are affected, smaller airports are sure to be.
The good news is the storm appears to be continuing on an eastward track and not heading toward Washington, New York and Boston. High pressure appears to be building behind the storm and sunny weather with above-freezing temperatures are forecast for Tuesday.
