The weather forecast for the Caribbean is not good right now. I'm scheduled to fly Friday night from San Francisco to Bogota and I have a layover for 4 hours in Panama City, Panama. While the weather in Bogota is fine, there are 3 hurricanes forming in the vicinity the of the Caribbean that is in the direct path of my flight.
I am covered by CSA insurance in the event that my flight is delayed more than 12 hours, or cancelled.
Is there any information, guide out there that can help me predict whether my flight would be cancelled, based on weather? Or does an airport sometimes give us prediction, or try to withhold information until it knows with certainty whether they plan to cancel/delay flights? eg. If it were possible for me to know that my flight would be cancelled with a "likely" probability, I would likely make other plans and not even go to the airport to wait and find out.
In the event that I decide to proceed with my travel plans, and it turns out my flight is delayed for over 12 hours, will I have to have waited at the airport for up to 12 hours if I only wanted to abort my plans only after I knew I would get reimbursed (trip is delayed over 12 hours)?
