Sprawling wintry mix causes cross-country trouble

Sprawling wintry mix causes cross-country trouble



A winter storm delayed transportation from the midwest to the east coast. Nationwide, more than 530 flights had been canceled and another 480 delayed but the widespread problems from the weekend appear to have exited along with the snowstorm that caused them.

Nationwide, about 155 flights had been canceled and another 205 delayed as of 7:50 a.m. ET, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware.

Many of those cancellations came in the Washington, D.C., area, where 6 to 12 inches of snow fell across the region. More than 50 combined arrivals and departures had been cancelled at Washington Reagan National early Monday while another 22 were axed at Washington Dulles. A number of those cancellations were made pre-emptively on Sunday as snowfall piled up in the region. The tally of canceled flights accounted for about 5 percent of the entire day’s schedule at National Airport and about 3 percent at Dulles, according to FlightAware’s count.
