PHOENIX — Dozens of flights have been delayed, and over 20 others have been canceled Tuesday to and from Sky Harbor Airport, largely because of winter weather across the country.

According to Sky Harbor, 27 flights have been canceled Tuesday and 36 have been delayed so far.

An exact reason for each cancellation hasn’t been listed, but the FAA confirms there are delays and cancellations across much of the country because of winter weather.

Thousands of flights have been canceled at Chicago's largest airports as a snowstorm crawls through several Midwestern states ahead of frigidly cold weather.

In addition, most traffic that is allowed to arrive at Chicago O’Hare and other airports across the midwest are experiencing delays lasting several hours.

Winter weather conditions are expected to continue to impact air travel the rest of this week. In Chicago, Wednesday’s high temperature is expected to be negative 13 degrees.

Several states including Wisconsin and Michicagan have declared a state of emergency because of snow and impending dangerously cold temperatures.

As always, make sure to check your flight status ahead of time if you’re traveling to or from either major airport in the Valley.
