Tracking The Storm. The most significant moisture should pass well south/east of Minnesota today - worried about ice at the airports in the Chicago area, which may trigger some delays later today. The red dots over western MN show "IFR" conditions, low visibility from falling snow.
Divine Intervention? So far so good for air travel - NO delays at any of the major airports, which borders on miraculous. I don't think our luck will hold out. Ice is moving into Chicago, and visibilities will drop at MSP later this afternoon as snow increases - leading to possible delays. The later in the day you're flying, the greater the odds of some disruptions. For the very latest airport delays click here.
