Flight Delays at Sarasota-Bradenton Airport
Significant flight delays at the Florida airport are due to snowy weather elsewhere in the nation.
If you're flying out of the Sarasota-Bradenton Airport, you may be in for a wait. A long wait.
Snowy weather in the Northeast and West is hampering air traffic from Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport.
About 40 percent of commercial flights from SRQ were late taking off Wednesday afternoon, according to FlightView.com. Another 20 percent were "very late" with scheduled departures. Some incoming flights are late but the problem is not as severe.
Problems were expected to continue Thursday, as high winds and snow made travel difficult across large portions of the country.
The bottom line for Florida air travelers is to check with the airlines or airport for flight delays and cancellations.
In Florida, the threat of severe thunderstorms has mostly passed, though a cold front followed Wednesday's showers, according to the National Weather Service.
