Over 800 flights delayed at Denver International Airport due to severe weather in Colorado


There were over 800 flights delayed at Denver International Airport on Friday due to severe storms that swept the state. 

Around 1:24 p.m. on Friday, officials with DIA posted on X issuing a travel advisory and urged passengers to check with the airlines they are traveling with due to severe storms causing delays. 

On Friday, there have been approximately 811 flights delayed and 56 total cancellations as of 9:51 p.m. The storms eventually caused a ground delay at DIA. 

According to the First Alert Weather Team, there was another round of thunderstorms that’s expected to fire up Colorado’s Front Range and out onto the Eastern Plains

Some of the storms were predicted to be possible severe — mostly north of Denver and in the mountains — and as a result, Friday was a First Alert Weather Day, according to First Alert Meteorologists Callie Zanandrie and Dayle Cedars.
