Southwest Airlines’ computer issues continued into Tuesday afternoon, a day after a computer glitch stranded passengers at airport terminals around the country.

"We are aware of system issues and are working quickly to resolve," the company tweeted just after 2 p.m. ET. "We will share more info soon."

SOUTHWEST AIRLINES IMPLEMENTS GROUND STOP AFTER 3RD-PARTY TECH ISSUES

The hiccups began Monday night when a misfire of the company’s third-party weather data provider prompted the airline to ground its jets for several hours before some flights resumed.

"We are beginning to resume flight operations after our third-party weather data provider experienced intermittent performance issues earlier this evening preventing transmission of weather information that is required to safely operate our aircraft," the company said in a statement. "While Southwest Teams and the vendor worked to restore connectivity, we implemented a ground stop to protect the Safety of our Crews and Customers."
