Even as wind died down in the D.C. area Tuesday, there were still no flights arriving or departing at the region's airports.

Spokesmen for Baltimore Washington International, Reagan National and Dulles International airports said they expected additional widespread flight cancellations Tuesday and only a limited number of flights to come in Tuesday evening.

"We will have very, very limited operations," Dulles and Reagan spokeswoman Kim Gibbs said. "Later this afternoon there could be some flights out, but again, airlines are making that determination."

At BWI, the tarmac looked the same as the day before: empty, airports spokesman Jonathan Dean said.

"We anticipate extensive airline flight cancellations," he said Tuesday. "There may be very limited airline service later today."
