Denver International Airport is advising travelers to expect some delays Wednesday morning due to freezing temperatures, ice and snow.

Average delays of 15 to 30 minutes are expected for planes leaving the airport which will have to be de-iced, said Alex Renteria, airport spokesperson.

About 800 people spent last night at the airport as snow that began on Sunday continued to fall and some flights were cancelled.

The airport provided blankets, toothbrushes and other personal items to the stranded passengers.

So far on Wednesday there have been 52 delays and 21 cancellations, Renteria said shortly after 7 a.m.

Light snow has been falling this morning but is expected to taper off after 10 a.m. The temperature at about 7 a.m. was 4 degrees.
