TAMPA, Fla. — Nothing can pull the plug on a vacation or trip quite like hurricane season. 

As Tropical Storm Elsa makes landfall in north Florida, it's possible that flights could be delayed or canceled because of inclement weather.

While all three airports in the area appear to be operating as usual Wednesday afternoon, travelers should still check their flights regularly for the latest updates. 

Individual airlines make the final decision on grounding or diverting flights, but airport services could be impacted even if flights are still departing and arriving.

Tropical Storm Elsa is the earliest E-named storm since the National Weather Service began naming storms in 1950. It was at one point a Category 1 hurricane, but has since weakened back into a tropical storm. 

Elsa passed the Tampa Bay area Tuesday evening with strong winds and rain before making landfall Wednesday morning near Keaton Beach.
