Added to that, the governor's news release said almost "1,000 N.C. Department of Transportation workers are working to clear snow and ice in the western part of the state and the Triad".

The huge storm struck Kansas and Nebraska on Friday, before moving east into Missouri, Iowa, Illinois and IN on Saturday.

The winter storm warning remains in effect until 4 a.m. Monday.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning effective through 6 p.m. ET Sunday for Washington, parts of central Maryland and northern and northwest Virginia.

As the storm heads east, up to 16 inches (41 cm) of snow were likely in western Missouri and St. Louis.

As of early Sunday afternoon, more than 100,000 customers were without power in North Carolina.

Some areas of N.C. received a half inch of ice accumulation, the NWS reported.

There is a small chance the southern Appalachians will get enough freezing rain and sleet to turn into an ice event Saturday into Sunday. The Southeast has seen abundant precipitation in December and January, and the additional rain could put a strain on already-high rivers.

In a suburb of Chicago, Illinois State Police Trooper Christopher Lambert was standing outside his patrol auto at the scene of a three-car crash when a driver struck him, authorities say.

Missouri troopers had responded to more than 3,000 calls for help, involving more than 700 crashes and 1,300 stranded vehicles till Saturday afternoon even as in central Missouri, about 12,000 households and businesses suffered power failure at one point, media reported.

The storm was pretty much over by late afternoon when the Kansas City Chiefs hosted the Indianapolis Colts in an National Football League playoff game, but seats in Arrowhead Stadium were still covered in snow and fans tailgated under tents in the stadium parking lot.

"PLEASE DO NOT TRAVEL", authorities warned Saturday on Twitter.

At least three fatalities in Missouri are a result of weather-related crashes, local state police tweeted Friday night. But it cited progress Saturday as crews worked to clear routes and bring "water and food to stranded motorists".

Several of the major interstates, including I-44, were particularly challenging for crews to clear.

In a Saturday morning tweet, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson expressed concern and urged all residents to stay off the roads until conditions improved.

Dozens of flights were cancelled or delayed at St. Louis Lambert International Airport over the weekend, while United Airlines offered travel waivers for passengers changing flights across the path of the storm.

The storm has also affected airports and electricity across the Midwest.
