Windy weather causes flight delays
[This post has been updated: 4:52 p.m.]
It's a windy afternoon in the Washington area, with thunderstorms and hail being reported in some areas. The conditions are causing delays at airports on the East Coast.
Some arriving flights at Dulles are being delayed almost two hours due to wind. Jason Samenow of the Capital Weather Gang says a gust of 58 mph was recorded at Dulles. Delays for flights heading to New York and Philadelphia area airports are in excess of three hours in some cases, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. Boston-bound flights may experience minute delays of more than 90 minutes. Check with your airline if you're connecting through any of those locations.
If you're flying out of town, here are some resources for more information on how your specific flight plans may be affected:
