HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Winter weather has grounded hundreds of flights in North Texas. Snow and ice forced Southwest Airlines to cancel operations out at Dallas Love Field; the airline hopes to resume operations later Tuesday. Although a specific number of canceled flights was not reported, Southwest Airlines usually offers passengers 125 daily nonstop departures from Love Field.

Tuesday morning, the national Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Additional reports indicate that American Airlines canceled 231 flights Tuesday at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. American Eagle a subsidiary of American, canceled 90 flights Tuesday morning.

As DFW airport remains, workers were working diligently to de-ice aircraft. Passengers with flights on Southwest Airlines were encouraged to check the carrier’s website for updated information. Officials at American Airlines advised passengers to do the same.
