Hundreds of flights grounded as U.S. Midwest digs out

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

"It's going to be messy", said Todd Kluber, a National Weather Service meteorologist, hinting that the area could see even more blizzard-like conditions.

The cancellations come on the heels of more than 1,000 cancellations nationwide on Sunday because of the blizzard conditions in the Windy City.

Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories are in effect from central Missouri into eastern MI. "We strongly recommend that you postpone travel plans, if possible, however, if you must be on the road, make sure your vehicle's emergency kit is stocked, your gas tank is full and your cell phone and charger are with you and someone knows your travel plans".

In eastern Nebraska, part of Interstate 80 between Lincoln and Omaha was closed Sunday morning because of multiple accidents after snow covered that area.

Dozens of school districts in Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, and Iowa also cancelled school because of the weather.

A fast-moving winter storm was expected to blanket much of the central Midwest with snow on Sunday at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend, grounding hundreds of flights and forcing the closure of part of a major highway on one of the busiest travel days of the year.

She told reporters in Brussels: "The UK's position on the sovereignty of Gibraltar has not changed and will not change". Mr Sanchez claimed the agreement allowed Spain to talk about "co-sovereignty" of the territory in the coming years.

The National Weather Service's Topeka office posted a video of near-blizzard conditions.

The weather service posted some snowfall totals on Twitter Sunday night.

The region could see whiteouts and slick roads throughout Sunday, making travel hard if not impossible at times, Brink said.

More than 240 incoming and outgoing flights have already been cancelled at Chicago O'Hare Airport on Monday November 26, with hundreds more having been cancelled the previous day, reports Flight Aware. "It's pretty treacherous travel conditions", she said. As the low pressure passes, areas behind the system will continue to see more snow through Monday evening with up to a foot possible before the skies clear.

Illinois State police and LaSalle County emergency management said crews were removing people from their cars by snowmobile and urged people to stay off the roads into Monday, WBBM-TV reported.

By Monday, Brink said, the storm will have moved into the Northeast. Wind reports from the Central Plains clocked wind gusts at tropical storm force from 50 to 75 miles per hour from Nebraska to Texas.
