No flights at National, Dulles; few at BWI
10:40 a.m. Update: Flight operations at Dulles have been canceled. The terminals at both Dulles and National are open, but airports officials advise against coming to the airport. Officials said crews are working to keep the runways clear, but the large amount of snow that is falling "presents a challenge."
Original Post: Flight operations have been canceled at Reagan National for Friday and Saturday. Tara Hamilton, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, said most domestic operations had also ceased at Dulles. Some international flights were continuing.
Hamilton said it would be Saturday afternoon before officials would be able to evaluate when they can reopen National. Most air carriers had moved their aircraft out of the area, which would facilitate clearing snow. She said most of the snow has to be hauled away because of limited space at the airport.

All flights at BWI Marshall for Friday are canceled. Most Saturday service will be canceled, airport officials said. Keep in mind that airlines will also need time to move aircraft back to the airports once the snow is cleared.
