Flights Cancelled As Storm Disrupts Schedule

February 15, 2015

A number of Bermuda flights — both incoming and departing — have been cancelled today [Feb 15] as a winter storm impacts the United States and Canada.

According to the U.S. National Weather Service, “The biggest weather concern over the next 24 hours will be a rapidly developing nor’easter near New England.

“This is expected to produce blizzard conditions for eastern New England on Sunday and into Sunday evening, with 6 to 12 inches of snow expected, with locally higher amounts.

“This same storm is bringing in a truly arctic airmass behind it, with some of the coldest weather of the season from the Mid-Atlantic to New England on Sunday.

“High temperatures are expected to be 20 to 35 degrees below normal by February standards, with afternoon readings in the single digits and teens widespread, and 20s extending well into Virginia and North Carolina.

“Strong winds will combine with these frigid temperatures to produce brutal subzero wind chills, and numerous wind chill warnings and wind chill advisories are in effect. Sub-freezing high temperatures are also expected for Monday over these same areas.”

More than 1,500 flights have been cancelled for Sunday, according to Flightaware.com, which tracks cancellations for both weather and mechanical reasons.

An automated look at today’s Bermuda flight schedule is here, however travellers are urged to check directly with their airlines to confirm the schedule.
