Share “Will Rogers World Airport closes”

Will Rogers World Airport closed today as weather conditions continued to prevent flights from arriving or leaving Oklahoma City.

Crews de-iced the runway overnight, but heavy snow moved in early in the day causing further problems. The airport remained open until 2:30 p.m. as officials hoped a break in the weather would allow some flights to arrive.

Airport spokeswoman Karen Carney said it became clear after noon that conditions were getting worse as the heavy snow made visibility an issue along with slick runways.

Anyone scheduled to fly should call the airline to reschedule.

"We're battling ice just like the rest of the city," Carney said.

Carney said she expects a limited schedule of departures and arrivals should resume tomorrow.
