A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Airport operators in Toledo say a deal to secure flights to southwest Florida has fallen through.
The airport had had been negotiating with Aviation Advantage Inc. to operate two roundtrip seasonal flights each week between Toledo Express Airport and Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers.
Toledo's airport director tells The Blade newspaper (bit.ly/TK1yOc) the deal fell apart because terms couldn't be reached with another airport that was needed for the plan to work.
Airport operators in Toledo have struggled to attract carriers for New York and Denver and several carriers have dropped routes to Florida and other destinations in the South over the last few years.
Many travelers have been opting to fly out of Detroit where more flights are available and rates are often less expensive.
