    Runways at DFW Airport remain operational Saturday despite over two inches of snow and an icy glaze. However, the wintry mix of precipitation will have an impact on flight schedules today due to de-icing requirements for departures.

    The Airport remains under a Winter Weather Warning until 2 p.m. Saturday, when temperatures are expected to rise above freezing.

    DFW Airport advises all customers with flights or anyone meeting flights to stay updated with the latest flight information. As of 9:30 a.m., airlines serving DFW have cancelled over 350 Saturday flights, representing approximately 35 percent of the day's full schedule of flights.

    DFW Airport crews continue to treat runways and monitor the airfield for problem areas, and the airport has deployed its fleet of pavement treatment trucks and snow plows to keep the airfield operational.
