Medium Probability of Delays Between 8:00 AM on 2/22 AND 10:00 AM on 2/22

During this time period the airport expects to experience snow which will cause a medium likelihood that flights will experience delays.

Snow causes many issues at airports, reducing the visibility for landing aircraft and making the runway slippery. Airports that typically see a lot of snow will have the resources to clean up, but heavy snowstorms may cause extended delays.

Here is a look at what the forecast conditions are and what is required for normal operation:

Normal Forecast
Conditions None Snow

Visibility Greater than 2 10
Wind Less than 11.8 MPH 9.4 MPH
Clouds Higher than 1,000 Overcast at 15,000

High Probability of Delays Between 10:00 AM on 2/22 and 2:00 PM on 2/22

During this time period the airport expects to experience low visibility which will cause a high likelihood that flights will experience delays.

Wind Less than 11.8 MPH 9.4 MPH
