Detroit Weather Alerts, Warnings and Advisories: The Definitive Thread

Possible severe weather coming to DTW:

http://www.weather.com/weather/map/interactive/48174

cnn.com and weather.com reporting 70mph winds, with possible tornadoes.

Looks like it'll hit 1pm EST, then be gone really fast.

A little late to change travel plans, yet let us all know how they handle the weather.

Good luck and hold onto your hats at the U.S. airport I love.

Already hit Chicago this morning. O'hare isn't backed up too badly. Crazy wind though.

That's what I'd call a very long range forecast .

Weather forecasts are available a month out? I'm impressed!

ETA: Dang! Beaten to the punch...

Ignoring the title, it's still a pretty long-range forecast.

Yea, yea, screwed up the month. Close to the end, and paying next month's bills.

Thanks to the mod, for fixing that!

300+ flight cancellations isn't bad? What's bad?!

Not as bad as thought it would be. Looks like it started to break up some, with patches of open skies. We got hit by the very south tip of a cell, and it only lasted about 15min, yet what we got was impressive. Not sure how much of a hit DTW took, or to the south or north.

Local paper web sites cut to the chase... expected the worst, and it ran out of energy by the time it got to the lake.

300 flights is less than 1/3 of O'hare's daily volume. For flights that aren't cancelled, most delays were less than two hours, and this seems to have been declining since late morning. Relatively good availablility still showing on many airlines/routes, not too much zeroed out. That's not a bad day for O'hare.

Heading in to DTW shortly. We have been warned it may be a rough ride in.

Would have been an interesting day to be in the OCC.

MSP is running about 4 HOURS late.

And cancelling fights fast (at MSP). My MSP-ROC cancelled and the board was not looking good for a lot of flights. Wind here is the big issue right now.

It is supposed to be like this tomorrow too. I am supposed to fly to MSP in the morning. I am expecting delays, if so I hope they call me before I have to get up at 4am
