After previously planning to close on Monday at 2 a.m. due to Hurricane Dorian, Orlando International Airport changed plans and will remain open for commercial flights through Monday's Labor Day holiday.

The change comes as predictions for the storm's path show it remaining off the coast of Florida. While Orlando remains within forecasters' "cone of uncertainty," airport officials consider the storm less likely to disrupt airport operations.
