Low Visibility at Washington National
Low visibility at Washington National Airport has required a number of flights to divert to other airports from Norfolk to Pittsburgh.
At this moment, they’re reporting 1/8th of a statute mile visibility and a temperature of 15 Celsius along with a dewpoint of 15 Celsius.
Visibility on Runway 01 is reported to be underneath 2400 feet.
Expect Delays this morning, Thursday, March 23, 2012, until conditions improve at National Airport. If you have not already departed, we suggest you check with your air carrier to see if your flight is ontime this morning as it’s likely the morning delays and diversions may cause aircraft positioning problems later in the day.
Washington National Airport is on a Ground Hold until at least 9:30am this morning, meaning no new aircraft may depart to National until the Ground Hold is lifted. Several flights scheduled to depart National this AM have also been cancelled.
