Delays at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport are possible as the Federal Aviation Adminstration continues to deal with air traffic controller furloughs.
An agency spokesman said nine flights were diverted to Dallas Love Field on Tuesday morning due to "weather and staffing challenges."
"The cold front that moved through this morning brought with it a change in wind direction, as well as mist and rain," said FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford. "The ceilings at DFW are beginning to improve and we're working to return the diverted flights as soon as possible."
The FAA said controllers at its regional TRACON centers, including the one in Fort Worth, will continue to space planes farther apart to manage the air traffic with its current staff which could lead to delays at DFW, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
