Passengers check in for their flights at O'Hare International Airport on December 21, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois.
Dozens of flights leaving and arriving into San Diego’s Lindbergh Field were delayed Friday airport officials said.
More than 75 flights were listed as delayed well into the evening. Southwest Airlines appears to have been hit the hardest according to airport spokesperson Katie Jones.
On the airline’s website, Southwest reported cancellations for most of their Thursday afternoon and evening flights to and from Chicago Midway.
On Friday, Jones said flights to and from Chicago were in danger of being so delayed or canceled.
A powerful winter storm was dumping snow on Northern California and the Pacific Northwest.
The California Highway Patrol on Friday said the highway was closed 10 miles north of Redding in Shasta County. Forecasters say Mt. Shasta could see 7 feet of snow before the storm moves out on Sunday.
Holiday travelers who were delayed by the snowstorm in the Midwest yesterday are getting where they're going today.
The number of flight cancellations in Chicago was in the dozens Friday, not the hundreds like the day before.
Some 200,000 pre-holiday travelers are expected to pass through O'Hare today, described as the busiest air travel day of the holiday period.
