Weather cancels, delays more Tampa International Airport flights

Aircraft diverted from Philadelphia International Airport line up on a ramp at Lehigh Valley International Airport in Allentown, Pa., on Sunday. Heavy snow and icing conditions forced the planes to divert from landing at Philadelphia. Cold weather has forced thousands of flights to be canceled across the country, leaving many travelers frustrated for yet another day.

Aircraft diverted from Philadelphia International Airport line up on a ramp at Lehigh Valley International Airport in Allentown, Pa., on Sunday. Heavy snow and icing conditions forced the planes to divert from landing at Philadelphia. Cold weather has forced thousands of flights to be canceled across the country, leaving many travelers frustrated for yet another day.

Another round of rough East Coast weather is stalling flights in and out of Tampa International Airport Tuesday, and it won't clear up any time soon.

"Everyone should be checking with their airlines," TIA spokeswoman Christine Osborn said Tuesday morning.

Osborn said seven flights were canceled and 53 more were delayed, primarily to or from East Coast airports but also at major hubs, by 10 a.m.

A band of winter weather stretched hundreds of miles from Kentucky to Boston and had already dumped inches of snow in Midwestern areas by early morning. Freezing rain was predicted in some areas.

Osborn said those conditions contribute to ground delays, which stack up and don't tend to clear throughout the day.

"If we have delays this significant early in the day, it's unlikely that things will work themselves out," Osborn said.
