IAD Closed By Bad Weather

submitted by 777jaah

I was supposedly to be in IAD by now, flying B6 305 but just got diverted to Richmond, and I really want to get to my hotel, taking into account I flew the red eye to JFK from BOG. anyone knows, or has any info of how bad the weather is at IAD?

The flood and tornado threat area for Hurricane Lee currently covers an area from Birmingham Alabama northeast to the Mason-Dixon line.

A lot of airports in the coverage area.

The OP was refrencing the weather at IAD on Sat morning....string of storms came down from PA and impacted the airport for about 90 minutes. kgaiflyer is correct....Lee's remnants will impact the eastern seaboard in a day or so and probably cause disruption.

Point taken. I'm down the peninsula from SFO taking a sanity break from the DC area.

I should arrive back just in time for Hurricane Lee.
