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

Thunderstorms are potentially deadly for aircraft, mainly because of the unpredictable and severe winds that are associated with these storms. That wind causes a significant risk to landing aircraft and so airports will typically close during thunderstorms.

Lightning can also cause a hazard to ground staff, so airports may decide to stop servicing aircraft on the ground during these storms and for a period of time after they have passed.

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

Conditions None Thunderstorms, rain
