About 4,815 domestic and international flights scheduled for today were canceled Monday afternoon, but that number was expected to rise with the outcome of the storm.
In Charleston, more than 900 seats on departing and arriving flights were canceled Monday, Atkinson said.
He said the terminal was not crowded with waiting passengers Monday as people either had been accommodated by other airlines or were waiting for flights later this week.
"We still have flights to Charlotte, Atlanta and Detroit," Atkinson said. "We still have about half of our schedule capacity."
Those flights still are leaving and arriving on time.
Atkinson said the weather at the airport Monday didn't appear to be a problem for pilots.
"As far as weather conditions here, it's just rain," he said. "The runway shows no sign of icing, and visibility is probably about three miles or more."
