An afternoon and early evening filled with sleet and freezing rain caused major delays and cancelations at Detroit Metro Airport.

Severe weather at other regional airports also impacted the schedule in Detroit.

Flights that did depart were on average, about 5 hours delayed, with departures resuming fairly normally around the 9:00 pm hour.

That is minus the canceled flights.
