As I was walking outside of my apartment here in OKC to meet my dad, AAL60 turned final over my head. After checking flightaware it looks like there's a mess of diversions here today. Anyone in the DFW area know how bad the storms are?

Quoting AndyinPIT (Thread starter):

They never got really bad, per se, nor where there anything more than a handful of cells. One big cell due north of DFW tracked right at the airport before dying out, but, of course, that track was pretty much on all the various 18L/R and 17 L/C/R finals. The ensuing ATC delays are what really drove some flights to divert. We had pretty much the same situation with a few cells near DAL, and although some flights did get some minor holding, nobody diverted. Both DFW and DAL went into 1st-tier ground stops for about an hour, and those were both cancelled.

I was out and about shopping. In the parking lot of the mall in Frisco, I see cloud to ground lightning, but it's sunny above. The weather this afternoon around here was rather odd. The storms were hit and miss.

OKC is fun when DFW is going through hell. I have seen a few T7's, 76's, foreign 74's, and multitudes of AA MD80's at OKC waiting on DFW to open back up.

Enjoy OKC while you are here. Hot right now, it'll cool off sometime soon.

- You can say the same thing about IND when ORD gets hit (rain or snow).

Long gone the days of having some fuel to hold for the WX to pass.

One time inbound from ABQ to DFW we held for 1.5 hrs for sequence into the airport.
Back then the CAPT could add 5k to the fuel load. I guess things have changed a bit.

My flight from COS to DFW (AA 1580) was canceled yesterday. I was re-routed on CO via IAH, and arrived at DCA only about 2 hours later than I had been scheduled to arrive on AA. I was angry at AA for inconveniencing me, when I should have been thankful.

Strange how these things work out sometimes. . .

There's a few more storms headed our way. Look out surrounding airfields.

I concur with Super80 - the wx in Dallas (especially North Dallas, Frisco) was not that bad - there were a few passing cells but nothing major. I'm surprised DFW was a mess, there was a steady stream of MD80's over my home (as usual).

Today the cells are building, but it still shouldn't be too bad. Tomorrow I'm flying out of DFW in the morning and back in the afternoon - to Atlanta of all places - I worry that storms may make my day hell!
