CHICAGO (AP) — Airlines have canceled nearly 100 flights out of Chicago's two airports because of a snowstorm that is reducing visibility.

The Chicago Department of Aviation says more than 80 flights out of O'Hare International Airport have been canceled, along with another 12 at Midway International Airport.

According to the air travel tracking website, more than 80 other inbound flights that had been scheduled to land at O'Hare were also canceled.

The website reported that all inbound flights to O'Hare were being held at their points of origin until 9:30 a.m.

The Chicago area was forecast to get 3 to 6 inches of snow by late Saturday afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory until 6 p.m.
