About 40 flights canceled at DFW Tuesday morning

With a light snow and wintry mix falling over North Texas, about 40 flight departures had been cancelled at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.

"DFW's Airfield Operations teams report snow is falling on the airfield, and all the airlines are deicing departure aircraft prior to takeoff," said airport spokesman David Magana in a news statement around 7 a.m. Tuesday.

The airport is advising passengers to check their flight status prior to heading out to the airport and to be cautious on roadways around the airport which are "reported to be wet but passable."

UPDATE: Flightstats.com, a web site that tracks flights, reports that about 170 departures out of DFW Airport have been cancelled so far this morning.

UPDATE 9:30 a.m.: American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller said the carrier has cancelled about 340 arrivals and departures at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport because of the weather. Operations are expected to improve later in the afternoon when temperatures rise above freezing.
