would it be possible to only allow commercial flights when the weather is good?

Is that possible or is turbulence always present up there?

    That would be no evening flights into Denver most of the time (Winter storms and Summer turbulence, as you come over the continental divide).

    As planes have long been perfectly able to fly when the weather's bad, the question is pointless.

    No, that would cause havoc with schedules.Commercial flights mostly fly above the weather. There can be turbulence any day regardless of the weather.

    Significant weather events do cancel or delay flights, but it's not practical to do so for mild weather events.  And turbulence can occur even in the absence of poor weather conditions.

    There's always an element of turbulence; and planes are fine with most of it, as with other storms etc. Obviously planes don't fly if there's a significant storm.

    Flights are re-routed or cancelled when considered unsafe. The issue is that when one flight is cancelled, everywhere it is going gets messed up. People need to travel when the weather is not so good also.
