Travel conditions across the country remain difficult as winter storms are seriously affecting multiple parts of the country. Denver International Airport, not only feeling the delays and cancellations from the major winter storm in the southeast, is also dealing with its own winter weather that is causing delays and cancellations to flights heading in and out of Denver.
A snow squall moved over the airport just after 7pm Monday evening and lead to many incoming flights having to hold around the airport for as long as an hour until the snow cleared. Accumulation rates up to 2-inches per hour were reported at the airport during this snow squall.
This was the remnants of the winter storm that dumped half a foot or more of snow in the Denver metro area overnight into Monday afternoon.
