If you look at people wearing shorts and walking without coats at Denver's Washington Park, it's hard to believe the city could be under several inches of snow in just a couple of days, and from roads to airlines, crews are preparing for the storm.
Already, Denver Public Works and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) are talking about getting ready for a rough road ahead.
"In the Western part of the state they're already on snow shift -- the storm is supposed to come in sometime over the next 24 hours or so," said Bob Wilson, a CDOT spokesman, adding that by Sunday night, it's all hands on deck. "By Monday, that's when we anticipate the whole state will be blanketed in snow."
Wilson said residents should be aware, as officials may implement the traction law, requiring all tires have a minimum one-eighth inch tread.
Frontier Airlines is already notifying passengers that they can re-book their flights before the coming storm.
"It's going to be messy here in Denver," said Kevin Hudson, Frontier's System Operations Director. He advises anyone planning to travel to consider potential flight delays and cancelations Monday into Tuesday. "If the predicted two inches of snow an hour happens combined with high winds, that level of snow for any airport can cause chaos."
Hudson suggested people traveling Monday re-book their flights early or later if their schedules are flexible.
