Salt Lake City International Airport personnel braced for the icy fallout Friday as a major winter storm descended on the nation's Northeast, even as winter weather promised to also blanket Utah in white.
"They're saying there may be more than 3,000 flights are expected to be cancelled back East. All the Northeast airports are hunkering down ahead of this big storm coming in back there," said Airport Operations Director Dave Korzep. "There will be ramifications for us, too, here in Utah."
Those ramifications could translate into delays for passengers flying out of Salt Lake City to the Eastern Seaboard, as well as flights scheduled to arrive in Utah from the East.
