Storm set to blanket Midwest in snow on major travel day

Snow and wind likely to impact travel south of Minnesota

Strong winds and snow were expected to create blizzard conditions across much of Nebraska and parts of Kansas, Iowa and Missouri.

As far as snowfall totals, Manhattan is expected to receive between 2 to 4 inches of snow.

The village of Huntley warned residents Sunday morning to limit travel, give plows and salt truck room to work before, during and after the storm, and obey the village parking ordinance. The National Weather Service advisory now blankets the entire northern half of Kansas, virtually all of Nebraska and as well as a good portion of Missouri and Iowa where winter storm warnings are also posted.

Travel conditions will deteriorate from west to east across the Chicago area, beginning early Sunday morning with rain quickly transitioning to an accumulating heavy wet slushy snow that will cover the entire area into northwest IN by late IN the day.

The site reported that the majority of the cancellations are flights that were supposed to be routed through Chicago or Kansas City - two areas forecast to be hit hard by the storm.

The service upgraded a winter storm warning to a blizzard warning around 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

Strong wind and light showers will be possible during the overnight hours as temperatures drop into the 20s to start the day on Sunday. North to northeast gusts might reach up to 40 miles per hour.

The ABC7 Chicago 7-Day Outlook expects rain to change to snow from west to east on Sunday, with heavy snow possible. Not only is this system expected to bring heavy sticking snow, it will also impact the Thanksgiving end travel rush.

Snowfall totals will be heaviest from Kansas City, Mo., to Chicago.

The Kansas Department of Transportation is responding to multiple road closures due to low visibility.
