There was a snow-shower in DFW on Feb. 14, which caused delays of a few hours. I was flying SJU-DFW on my way to SFO and was able to change my DFW-SFO flight to an "earlier" flight that was delayed, but still allowed me to arrive in SFO before my originally scheduled flight. (n.b., I seem to recall that the weather was fine in ORD that day.)

When traveling on a RTW ticket, it is always a good idea to have a "Plan B" for the entire journey. The weather is only one of many potential factors that can affect your trip.
