Winter storm cancels flights to, from Pittsburgh airport

Monday, March 3, 2014, 9:18 a.m.

Several flights to and from East Coast cities were canceled Monday, according to Pittsburgh International Airport's website.

The cancellations included flights to Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia, according to

Likewise, some flights scheduled to arrive in Pittsburgh from those cities were canceled, the site said.

Snow began covering a thin layer of ice in the nation's capital. Officials warned people to stay off treacherous, icy roads — a refrain that has become familiar to residents in the Midwest, East and even Deep South this year.

The latest frigid blow of the harsh winter threatened as much as 10 inches of snow by the end of the day in Washington, Baltimore and elsewhere in the Mid-Atlantic region. Up to 6 inches of snow was predicted in Philadelphia, where a light dusting fell early in the day, while nearly a foot of snow was expected in parts of New Jersey.
