DENVER (CBS4)- Wednesday’s return of winter weather has cancelled more than 40 flights at Denver International Airport.

Light snow was falling at DIA Wednesday morning. There were a total of 46 cancellations by 10 a.m. Wednesday. Most of those were from smaller, commuter planes.

DIA has an average of 1,700 flights a delay. There are no significant delays but some are possible.

Airlines will be deicing aircraft so passengers can expect to spend a little bit longer on the plane before departing.

Pena Boulevard is wet and drivers are urged to allow for extra time to get to the airport. Most of the snow is melting on the pavement.

Snow removal crews are on standby and ready to clear the runways, taxiways and landside roads as needed. DIA has more than 250 pieces of snow removal equipment.

The winds are light and mostly from the north/northeast.

Travelers are urged to check their flight status before heading out to the airport with their airline.
