Medium Probability of Delays Between 1:00 PM on 9/14 AND 3:00 PM on 9/14
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:
|Visibility||Greater than 2|
|Wind||Less than 11.8 MPH||14.1 MPH gusting to 22.3 MPH|
|Clouds||Higher than 1,000||Clear|
