NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) — The winter storm that delivered a mix of ice, sleet and freezing rain to North Texas is still impacting traffic in and out of Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.

DFW officials say they continue 'to resume operations with two active runways.' While that means air travel at the airport is picking up,  customers are still being advised to check with their airline for flight status before heading to the airport.
