UPDATE: Jan. 6, 2015 9:24 p.m.

WASHINGTON (WNEW/AP) — Airports in the Washington region say snow is affecting travel.

As of about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, 110 flights have been cancelled and nearly 300 have been delayed out of Reagan National Airport. Baltimore–Washington International Airport has 12 cancellations and 167 delays, while Washington Dulles International has 19 cancellations and 176 delays according to FlightStats.com.


The National Weather Service said later Tuesday that a record daily maximum snowfall of 4.2 inches was recorded at Washington Dulles International Airport. That broke the old record of 3.9 inches daily maximum recorded at Dulles in 1989.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokesman Chris Paolino says the weather was having an impact and travelers should check with their airlines for the most up-to-date information.

Paolino says runways at both Reagan and Dulles International Airport have been closed intermittently for cleaning and treating.

Baltimore’s airport says travelers should expect delays for de-icing and check their flight status with their airline.

Information on the airport’s website showed more than two dozen departing flights were delayed Tuesday morning.

Airport spokesman Jonathan Dean says travelers should allow for extra travel time to the airport, as well.
