ESCANABA, Mich. (AP) - Officials say a problem with weather equipment at a small airport in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula that led to flight cancelations has been addressed.

The Daily Press of Escanaba and WLUC-TV report that arriving and departing commercial flights were cleared to resume on Tuesday afternoon at Delta County Airport.

The weather observation system malfunctioned on Sunday, canceling all commercial flights. The system is used to give airlines information about sky conditions, visibility, temperatures and winds.

The Federal Aviation Administration found that an antenna had moved over time, creating a less than optimal communication line. Airport administration and FAA maintenance crews will be moving the antenna to a more favorable position.
