All of you in the Midwest, take note that a lot of planes enroute to Chicago - O'hare and Midway are diverting due to Thunderstorms.

Keep an eye on FlightAware to see what to expect...

Here are some diversions already....

Yes this is a pretty bad thunderstorm. It is huge and will probably keep ORD in groundstop until around midnight. What makes things worse is that the usual reliever airports of RFD and MKE for flights from the west are also experiencing the same storms, so flights will be diverting quite far away. IND and DTW should expect a number of diversions. United, American and Southwest operations will be messed up for the rest of the evening. There haven't been many thunderstorms like this since July.

The goofy thing about this weather system is that it's not really moving all that much, and the cells keep dying out and reforming upon themselves. The delays are horrendous, and are not likely to get any better until this stuff moves or dies out and stays died out...

STL, MSP, and MCI have all recieved diversions from ORD. AA has also cancelled most of its late afternoon/evening flights from the west to ORD. 7 of American's flights from DFW to ORD have cancelled today. It looks like nothing that left after 2pm from the west coast has made it to ORD on any airline although there are still some flights airborne that could wait it out. Tonight is a rare night that you will see an Alaska Airlines 738 in MSP.

Ah, fall in Chicago. Yeah, these storms are rockin'! I was doing some tracking and saw many flights in holding patterns, only to divert.

The first severe thunderstorm warning here was for cells moving from SW to NE. That warning was cancelled as soon as the cells went over Lake Michigan, only to be immediately replaced by another warning for cells moving out of Wisconsin, moving from NW to SE. Winds were very high, and tress/limbs down and major flooding in Lakeview. Quarter sized hail in my back yard with a 6" tree limb down on my Weber grill Sad

More storms are expected later Tuesday afternoon. ORD will be a mess through tomorrow.

ORD must really be a mess. Both of United's last flights into RIC are cancelled. The 2044 arrival was actually due in at 0144 tomorrow morning, until it was recently updated. Funny thing, AA's 2330 arrival is still showing ontime into RIC. At least that is what RIC's website shows. I bet it will be hard getting a hotel tonight near ORD!

SBN caught a few mesa CL600s. crew timed out on both. we also caught an A319 (UAL651) that was still sitting in SBN when i left at 11:40.

midwest called us asking to divert a B712, but called back and cancelled. must have found somewhere else to go!

If only I were in Des Moines right now, I'd drive down there. As pathetic as it sounds that's some heavy metal for passenger planes in Des Moines. A nice change from all the RJs.

It really is a mess. Flight Explorer and WSI both show "in the red" (with some high precip tops and hail) in northern IL and in NE IN. Not used to seeing high cloud tops on Sentry over IL and MI past midnight Eastern. On WSI's CCFP (Collaborative Collective Forecast Product), the high tops are still forecasted through the rest of the night, and (in the same pattern as some of you have remarked), not really going anywhere! Not surprisingly, there's PIREPs (even late at night) of severe turbulence in those same areas at high and low altitudes. Pretty awful stuff.

I got caught in the same thing on Friday, Sept 22. We ended up in IND on a divert on DL from Atlanta. ORD is a real mess when t-storms kick up. Our flight to ORD from ATL ending up taking over five hours.

MSP received a good deal of diversions. This is the most flights I can remember diverting to MSP at one time due to storms at ORD (normally cities closer to ORD get the bulk of diverts).

A complete list of the 11 flights inbound to ORD that diverted to MSP this evening are located at Severe thunderstoms in Chicago diverts planes to MSP -- MSP Update Blog (10/02/06).

Looks like RFD received some aircraft, a good amount for being in the storm also. Here are the aircrafts:

UAL1141 A319 "United"
SKW6866 CRJ-700 "United Express"
MEP108 B717-200 "Midwest Airlines"
SYX7001 B1900 "Midwest Express"
NKS220 A319 "Spirit"

Not bad. Don't think Spirit has stopped in RFD before. Usually RFD receives some UAL's 777s and 747s.

Apparently three flights landed in RFD on Sunday night also and then left for ORD shortly after.

TCF9409 E170 "Shuttle America-United Express"
AAL486 MD82 "American"
AAL552 MD83 "American"

I scrolled down even more and found that two United A320s were at RFD on Saturday around 3pm and then shortly took off to ORD.

That's wierd, anyone else got any info on what that could be? I've never seen anything bigger than a private jet land/takeoff out of Racine and I'm only 2 miles from there. Would've been good to get a shot of that 717 there.



Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.
25 RoseFlyer : I wonder if a fuel emergency could have caused that. A 6500 ft runway at an uncontrolled airport isn't the best choice for diversions when there are
