WASHINGTON (AP) — Airports in the Washington region are being affected by the winter weather, and officials are asking travelers to check with their airlines about cancellations and delays.

Officials said the main runway at Reagan National Airport outside Washington re-opened at 9 a.m. Monday after being closed for several hours. Residual delays and cancelations are expected to continue throughout the day.

At Dulles International Airport in Virginia, three runways are open. Airlines canceled some morning flights due to the storm and additional cancelations and delays are expected.

Officials with the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport say snow has affected some flights, and flight delays or cancelations are expected.

The National Weather Service reports 10 inches of snow at Dulles, nearly 8 inches at BWI and more than 7 at Reagan.
