See 89 DIA Flights Canceled So Far Because of Late Spring Snow

Today's late-spring snowstorm is playing havoc with Denver International Airport. As of 6 a.m., 89 flights had been canceled, with the number of delays estimated at more than 600. (See information about all the canceled flights below.)

Snow in Denver during the month of May is hardly unprecedented. But according to CBS4's Ashton Altieri, the current storm stands out. Earlier this morning, he tweeted: "So far we've officially had 3.0 inches of snow in Denver. That's the most snow this late in season since May 29, 1975, when the city received 5.6 inches. 44 YEARS SINCE SNOW LIKE THIS IN LATE MAY!"

Most of the canceled flights are associated with three carriers — Southwest, with fourteen as of 6 a.m.; Air Canada with 19; and United leading the field by a long distance at 46.

If you thought you were flying out of the Mile High City on one of these airlines in the next few hours, you might very well be wrong. But there is some good news: Weather.com has the snow ending by 8 a.m. or so in most locations.
