Airport officials told ABC11 that they are expecting some flights to be pushed back throughout the weekend as weather in other parts of the country is having a ripple effect here -- delaying and cancelling flights.
A group of UNC students is among those spending the night at RDU after their flights were canceled.
They were supposed to heading to Los Angeles, but they will have to wait until Saturday morning to board a plane bound for the West Coast.
The students said they each spent an extra $600 to get on the first flight out.
Airport officials are urging travelers to check with their airlines before coming to the airport and to check the weather beforehand.
