Denver and nearby mountains and plains have been hit by their first major snowstorm of the season . According to KUSA-TV, the city's likely to get 4 to 8 inches of snow today and another 6 to 10 by tomorrow evening. Some of the mountain peaks to the west are likely to have three feet dumped on them.

As Weather.com says, "winter storm warnings are plastered throughout the Rockies and leading into the central High Plains."

If you or someone you know is scheduled to fly through Denver today or tomorrow, be aware: Some flights have already been canceled.
