WN and FL just cancelled All flights out of MDW and MKE starting at 4pm.
Depending on winds and weather RON aircraft are still planned to arrive tonight.
Today started the christmas travel weekend rush this is going to hurt.

My mother was traveling KJAX - KMCI via KBNA this morning.

Looks like everything into KMCI has been cancelled, and they have re-booked her for Saturday

MCI has high winds and ICE right now.
MCI Airport is having a hard time keeping the runways open.
I don't see RON aircraft making it into MDW if the Snow turns to a ICY mix tonight .
Weather calling for blowing snow tonight causing white out conditions.

DSM was pretty well closed this morning, now back open this afternoon with some crazy winds. It appears last nights DSM-MDW was cancelled along with this morning departure. I'm somewhat surprised the runway is in good of shape as it is after nearly 13 inches of snow. I-80 is blocked in a few spots between DSM and OMA as well as DSM and IOW. I-35 is currently closed between DSM and MCW due to a 25 car pile up with multiple fatalities.

DSM 201854Z 33028G47KT 2SM R31/2200VP6000FT -SN BLSN BR OVC017 M04/M07 A2977 RMK AO2 PK WND 31047/1847 SNE26B52 SLP090 P0000 T10441072

It appears WN is offering travel waivers for BUF, MDW, CLE, DSM, MCI, MKE, and OMA.



Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD.

A blizzard going through this time of year will make watching that travel interesting. Popcorn anyone?

I know how they feel. It will get down to 46F where I live.
