Patrick Clarke, Travel Pulse

Don't look, but another winter storm is coming.

In preparation for Winter Storm Mateo, which is expected to dump heavy snowfall across a large swath of the U.S. from the Great Plains to the Great Lakes through Friday, airlines are canceling flights and waiving change fees.

According to flight-tracking website FlightAware.com, airlines have canceled more than 600 flights within, into or out of the U.S. for Friday, with a majority of those cancellations coming at Chicago Midway International Airport and nearby O'Hare International Airport.
