Roads are still completely clear (again, as of Saturday morning), but Denver International Airport has already cancelled more than 1,000 flights into and out of Colorado, 9NEWS reported.
'726 canceled flights to and from DIA on Saturday,' 9NEWS said, with just over 1,000 canceled for Sunday, too. That's over 1,700 total.
The storm is arriving later than earlier forecasts had predicted, but the National Weather Service warns the storm is still coming (I know, I questioned it, too). In the Denver Metro area, snowfall is still expected to be around a foot and a half or more.
CDOT and Colorado State Patrol have urged Coloradans to not be out on the roads this weekend, and Governor Polis said the Colorado National Guard will be prepared for rescues.
