Two flights from Wichita are among more than 250 that have been canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth airport Thursday morning.

Record-setting snow has fallen on the Dallas metroplex, prompting school cancellations as well. The 3.5 inches that fell Wednesday and Thursday morning is the fourth-heaviest March snowfall on record in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Not all the Dallas flights are canceled out of Wichita Eisenhower National Airport; Southwest Airlines’ flight to Dallas is still scheduled.

As of 5 a.m., 275 flights had been canceled and officials were urging travelers to check the status of their flights before coming to the airport.
