As of 9:30 am on Tuesday, the airport showed 218 cancelled arriving flights and 219 cancelled departures.

The airport anticipated that there would be cancellations and delays today, after Environment Canada issued a winter storm watch calling for 20 cm of snow on Monday.

The storm watch has since gotten more intense. This morning’s latest update includes “a combination of 15 to 25 cm snow and ice pellets, possible freezing rain, and strong winds is expected today into tonight.”
