DENVER (AP) - The Denver airport's two dominant carriers are waiving change fees for some travelers ahead of a storm expected to bring snow, wind and bitter cold to Colorado.
The National Weather Service has issued winter storm warnings for much of western, northern and northeast Colorado, with forecasters saying snow could fall close to an inch an hour Thursday evening in the Denver area.
About 1 to 2 feet of snow is predicted in the western Colorado mountains through Friday.
United Airlines and Frontier Airlines are issuing travel waivers for people who had bought tickets for trips passing through Colorado on Thursday and Friday.
In northeast Colorado, forecasters warn of wind chill readings around 20 below zero and six to 10 inches of snow.
