Snow storm hits Rockies, closing schools, delaying flights

An unidentified man checks his mobile device while walking from a gym to his car as a winter storm drifts over the Intermountain West, Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, in Denver. Forecasters are predicting more than six inches of snow in the Denver metropolitan area and up to a foot in some mountain reporting locations before the storm moves east and on to the Great Plains on Tuesday.

The Colorado General Assembly has announced it will be on a two-hour delay for Tuesday.

As of Monday evening, both the House and Senate will gavel in at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The governor's office also canceled a 9 a.m. Tuesday news conference, to be led by Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera and scheduled in the west foyer of the state Capitol, for World Cancer Day. 

Tuesday's later start also means the House Appropriations Committee will meet at 10 a.m. to consider budget supplemental bills, which are scheduled for House debate on Wednesday. 

The Capital Development Committee will meet at 9:45 a.m.
