Flying? Check with your airline

For the latest transportation and transit news, follow us on Twitter: @drgridlock.

Rain continues to soak the Washington region, with a flash flood watch in effect through Wednesday evening. Travelers know what bad weather means: flight delays.

If you’re planning on flying today, contact your airline to check on your flight status before heading out. Shortly after noon on Wednesday, delays were showing at two of the region’s three airports (Reagan National and Baltimore Washington International) and every major airport northeast of us (Logan International Airport in Boston, Philadelphia International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Teterboro Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia Airport). [1:30 P.M. Update — Dulles International Airport is also now experiencing severe delays.]
