DENVER - Snow started falling around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, leaving around two inches of snow on the ground and the reason for 50 plus flight cancellations.

However, it's expected for snow to continue to fall throughout the day.

Authorities say, snow removal teams worked overnight to clear snow from Pena Boulevard, roadways and the airfield. Pena Boulevard remains wet, with some slush on the shoulders. Runways however are clear.

On average, delays have been around an hour. Up until this point there have been 60 flight cancellations, mostly commuter flights.

Earlier Saturday morning Southwest Airlines had long lines at the counter, however lines are almost back to normal since then.

DIA encourages travelers to check their flight status with their airline or to visit: www.flydenver.com.
