Blizzard Conditions Snarl Flights Through Minneapolis

Delta has issued a change waiver in response to the storm.

Blizzard conditions are disrupting flights through Minneapolis – St. Paul Airport today, and a separate storm system could cause even more travel disruptions through midweek.

According to the latest forecast from Accuweather, snow and high winds could cause local whiteout and blizzard conditions across the north-central United States Monday, with the worst conditions expected across the Dakotas, from Bismarck and Fargo, North Dakota, to Pierre, South Dakota. Poor visibility is also likely in Minneapolis and Duluth, Minnesota, and Green Bay, Wisconsin.

While that storm is set to fizzle Tuesday and into Tuesday night, Wednesday and Thursday could see more travel disruptions from another storm system in the northeast, according a separate Accuweather report. The region could be in for substantial snow, soaking rain and strong winds, all of which could lead to flight cancellations or delays.
