(WBIR) Travelers need to check their flight statuses early in the week because many airlines are having delays and cancellations due to the winter storm.

The issues aren't caused by the weather in East Tennessee, but the weather in other states.

Airport spokeswoman Becky Huckaby says a crew went into the airport overnight to de-ice planes and clear runways.

"Cities like Chicago are having a more difficult time today. Chicago has canceled from McGhee Tyson airport today. We are also seeing delays in places like Atlanta, Houston, Denver. some of those delays have been quite significant," she said.
