Middle Georgia Regional Airport (KMCN), Macon, Georgia

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - Snow, sleet and rain across the country, grounded commercial flights out of Middle Georgia Regional Airport, Tuesday.

The airport's management is reporting the conditions of its runways to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Silver Airlines, which is the only commercial airline at the airport, was forced to cancel all of its flights, Tuesday.

Middle Georgia Regional Airport Manager, Doug Faour said airport management cannot ground any private or commercial planes, but can only warn pilots of the condition of the runways.

Faour says it is completely up to the owner of a private plane whether or not they choose to fly.

"We'll be out on the taxiways and runways to inspect them periodically, throughout the storm," says Faour. "As the condition deteriorates, we'll monitor those conditions, and report those back to the air traffic control tower and the users of the airfield."

Airport personnel will continue to monitor the surface of the runways, and report the conditions to the FAA.
