DENVER (AP) The National Weather Service has issued winter storm warnings in southwest Colorado and hazardous weather watches elsewhere as light snow moved across the state on Thursday.

Denver International Airport officials say about 140 pieces of snow removal equipment are working on the airfield to prevent snow from accumulating on runways, taxiways and ramps as several airlines canceled flights. The airport handles about 1,650 flights a day.

The Colorado Department of Transportation ordered tire chain laws on major mountain passes, but traffic spokesman Mark Aultman said no major roads have been closed due to snow.
