KANSAS CITY, MO -

A spring snowstorm has delayed flights at Denver International Airport and closed several roads as it moves eastward, carrying the possibility of more than a foot of snow in some places.

Transportation officials said Interstate 70 was closed from Denver to Colby, Kan., on Saturday. The National Weather Service said the Denver area could see up to 7 inches of snow Saturday.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Jerry Killingsworth said 10 to 15 inches of snowfall already has fallen north of Interstate 70 in northwest Kansas and northeast Colorado.

Winter storm warnings have been issued for northern Kansas and Missouri, and the system will move into Illinois and Indiana overnight and into Sunday.
