As a winter storm approaches the Chicago-area, both local airports are already canceling hundreds of flights.
At O’Hare International Airport, nearly 200 flights have already been canceled, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation. Delays are still minimal, clocking in at under 15 minutes on average, but a total of 199 flights have already been canceled ahead of the storm.
It’s a similar story at Midway International Airport, as 109 flights have already been grounded because of the impending storm.
This weekend’s snowfall could dump between four and eight inches of snow on the city, and totals could go even higher as lake-effect snow is expected to impact the area as the weekend goes along.
Travellers are advised to check on their flight status before heading to the airport.
