Denver (AP) - Denver and eastern Colorado are bracing for a spring blizzard that could bring the heaviest snow in more than a year.
Wet flakes started falling before dawn, and heavy snow was expected in Denver by midmorning. Dozens of flights at Denver International Airport were canceled by 8 a.m. Thursday in anticipation of heavy snow.
Forecasters predicted 8 to 16 inches of snow in Denver by Friday with gusts up to 40 mph. More than a foot of snow is expected in the foothills west of Denver.
Snow on the eastern plains is expected to range from 6 to 15 inches, with gusts up to 45 mph.
Many schools are on spring break this week. Road crews in Denver have begun preparing for snow and possible whiteouts.
