Hundreds of flights canceled as Midwest braces for snowstorm

KQ2 Forecast: Blizzard Warning in effect for entire KQ2 Viewing Area

Schools were closed Monday throughout parts of Kansas, Missouri and IL.

Meteorologists say the heaviest snow is expected to be in southeast Nebraska, southwest Iowa and northwest Missouri where 8 to 12 inches could fall in towns such as Nebraska City, Falls City, Beatrice and Red Oak. The forecast for central IL is for up to six inches of snow, with the heaviest snow north of Springfield. Overall, nationwide, USA Today reported 500 canceled flights total, and another 700 delayed as of 11:50 am ET Sunday.

Along the shore of Lake Michigan in both Chicago and in, the National Weather Service warned of flooding on Monday and said that waves could reach between 12 to 16 feet along the Cook County shore and 14 to 18 feet along the in shore.

On Monday, Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer issued a state of emergency declaration for the state, according to multiple reports. Winds will also be a major issue, coming from the NNW at 20-30 miles per hour with gusts near 45 miles per hour. The National Weather Service was warning those conditions would make travel hard in places. There, actual blizzard conditions are not unlikely on Sunday.

Chicago Department of Aviation spokesman Lauren Huffman said that the city was able to open its parallel runways at O'Hare on Monday afternoon. Several instances of 10 inches or more have been reported in Forreston, Woodstock, Bull Valley and Rockford.

Omaha and most of the area north of Interstate 80 was still under a winter weather advisory Sunday morning.

There are ways to protect the iPad Pro like adding a protective cover and tempered glass, but it may not help a lot. Reports of bending iPad Pro tablets have emerged on Reddit , Twitter and Apple-focused blogs like MacRumors .

The storm also dumped wet snow on parts of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, creating treacherous driving conditions. Stay in your vehicle if you do become stuck. That included semitrailer trucks jackknifed across the highway.

The flight-tracking website FlightAware reported that 491 flights headed to or from the USA had been cancelled as of 11 a.m. Sunday.

It's going to be a sloppy drive and unsafe at times this morning and most of the day due to blowing snow even when the moisture begins to cut off. Temps in the mid 30s falling to the low 30s with winds NNW 10-20 miles per hour gusting to 30 miles per hour at times.

A majority of those flights involved Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and Eastern seaboard cities that were affected by weather, he added.

"Expect the weather to roll in sometime this afternoon/early evening". They say the unsafe conditions have made it impossible for road crews to be out.
