    At Midway, delays aren’t quite as bad, with most averaging under 15 minutes, but 38 flights have still been cancelled as wintry weather hits the area.

    The delays and cancellations come as a Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for the area. Freezing rain will give way to snow in most areas as the night progresses, but icy accumulations and conditions are still forecasted for the area until the advisory ends at 6 a.m. Monday morning.
