Flights at Sky Harbor were severely curtailed Thursday afternoon because of high winds from a winter storm that dumped heavy rain and deep snow on much of Arizona and California.

But airport communications center supervisor Kris Commerford says normal airport operations resumed late Thursday night with major carriers arriving and taking off.

Southwest Airlines canceled all arriving and departing flights at Sky Harbor on Thursday afternoon and also canceled flights in Tucson, Ariz., and at Southern California airports.

All Southwest takeoffs and landings at airports in Burbank, Ontario and San Diego in California were suspended Thursday, most were canceled at John Wayne airport in Orange County, and some were canceled at Los Angeles International Airport.

US Airways, United Airlines and other operators had also curtailed their operations at Sky Harbor.
