I am scheduled for a 1hr 10 min connection through MIA Friday night and there is a tropical storm warning in effect at that time. Are there any anticipated cancellations at MIA, FLL or PBI Friday night because of the tropical storm?


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

According to the weather channel, the following are predicted. Do we expect there to be significant delays and cancellations because of this

.. WINDS... AS TROPICAL STORM BONNIE APPROACHES THE AREA... SUSTAINED TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON HOURS ON FRIDAY WITH CONDITIONS IMPROVING BY THE EARLY EVENING HOURS.

Quoting RoseFlyer (Thread starter):

I would start thinking of a plan "B" if I were you.

When I was working in RIC a couple years ago we had a tropical storm roll through (40 mph sustained winds I believe) and flights were running on schedule. Granted the wind was right down runway 2, but as far as I remember flights were getting in. I remember because I watched a Trans States E-145 touch down on RWY 2 and had to use power to make it to taxiway C. I'm not sure of distances, but I'm pretty sure C is less than 4000 ft from the end.

I would call AA and try to change the connection to a different hub, they will most likely take care of that with no charge if they are expecting delays. By now AA's weather and Ops people have made a decision based on what they know about the storm to either avoid MIA or not so I'm sure they can give you a pretty good idea as to how your flight looks.

By night fall the weather should be completely fine for commercial airplanes. The airport does not have that many delays right now and the storm is right over the area. This is the weakess tropical system I have ever been through, The daily afternoon thunderstorm MIA gets is worse you should not have too much of a problem. Just check online ahead to figure things out.

I can even see some blue skys right now.

Update: The storm has passed over Miami so you should have no major problems.

Sunny here, just a couple miles west of Miami International Airport. A little windy but I can see planes landing without a problem, nothing worse than a Miami afternoon thunderstorm, like it was said before.

I don't think you should be concerned, tropical storms in this part of the world are pretty much a non-event. We probably get worse weather when we have afternoon storms in the summer, especially with minimal systems like Bonnie.

You should be fine for your connection this evening.

Cheers
