    Saturday's icy weather conditions cancelled and delayed dozens of flights going into and out of the region's airports.

    All runways at Washington Dulles International Airport are back open after they were shut down due to Saturday's icy weather conditions.

    The airport had reopened three of its runways by Saturday afternoon, but said on Twitter residual flight delays and cancelations were likely.

    Passengers should check with their airlines to confirm the status of their flights, the airport advised.
