Thick fog in Omaha prevented three commercial airplanes from landing Saturday morning at Eppley Airfield.
The situation improved in the afternoon and flights were landing as expected, said Steve McCoy, operations supervisor for the Omaha Airport Authority.
The planes were diverted to Des Moines and possibly other Midwest cities, McCoy said.
The fog was so thick in Omaha that the National Weather Service issued a dense fog advisory, warning that visibility would be less than a quarter-mile and drivers should slow down and use their headlights.
Omaha can expect a high Sunday of 62 and partly sunny skies, the weather service said.
