Flying this weekend into or out of Colorado? With more than five feet of snow in the forecast, you will definitely want to check the status of your flight before heading to the airport.

Severe winter weather is expected to make travel difficult around parts of Colorado this weekend, including most of the more populated areas.

Major airports, including Denver and Colorado Springs, are encouraging travelers to check their flight status before heading out amid the major storm. Delays and cancelations are possible, as have happened with similar storms in the past.

"Continuously check your flight status with your airline leading up to your trip and BEFORE leaving for the airport," tweeted the Colorado Springs Airport 

Frontier Airlines is allowing travelers scheduled to fly into or out of Colorado Springs and Denver between Friday, March 12, 2021 and Sunday, March 14, 2021 to make a one-time change in preparation for the incoming storm. 

Southwest Airlines also warned travelers that flights may be delayed, diverted, or canceled at certain airports including Colorado Springs, Denver, Montrose-Telluride, and Steamboat Springs-Hayden between Friday, March 12 and Sunday, March 14.
