Blizzard warning remains in effect in Midwest

Interstate 29 in northwest Missouri was closed from St. Joseph to the Iowa state line because of whiteout conditions, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation and Missouri Highway Patrol. Another 61 flights were canceled out of Chicago Midway Airport. "We are asking that you do your part, by driving at a safe speed, don't drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, keep your distractions down and wear your seatbelts", the ISP said in the statement.

The lakeshore flood warning begins 9 p.m. Sunday and lasts until noon on Monday.

Travelers should be prepared for slick roads, poor visibility and increased travel time, the weather service said.

Parts of Interstate 80 between Lincoln and Omaha in eastern Nebraska were closed at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend, as a result of multiple accidents on the snow-covered road.

"Kansas City received 5.8" of snow Sunday, breaking the record for the date that was set in 1895, according to the National Weather Service.

The snowstorm expected to hit Chicago may be arriving later than expected. All motorists should plan accordingly for conditions to deteriorate throughout the day Sunday, with heavy snow, high winds, limited visibility and much longer travel times anticipated.

The National Weather Service announced a blizzard warning Sunday afternoon to early Monday across most of northern IL, with the storm causing "life threatening travel conditions" Sunday night. It was re-opened by Sunday afternoon. At Kansas City International Airport, almost 200 flights were canceled.

The flight-tracking website FlightAware reported 875 flights headed to or from the USA were canceled.

The winter storm is expected to continue east on Tuesday.

The combination of the heavy snow and strong winds could also result in damage to power lines, so the weather service has warned Chicagoans to be prepared for power outages.

But Illinois State Police District 17 posted on Twitter a map from Illinois Storm Chasers showing a potential for 12-15 inches of snow for northwestern Bureau County and the Quad Cities, the possibility of 9-12 inches for Mendota and 6-9 inches for southern La Salle County.

The region could see whiteouts and slick roads throughout Sunday, making travel hard if not impossible at times, Brink said. They say the unsafe conditions have made it impossible for road crews to be out.
