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.

Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories were in effect from central Missouri into eastern MI.

Check flight schedules if you have travel plans.

The storm is expected to wind down on Monday, though the National Weather Service warned that travel conditions would be rough through the morning in affected areas, including Nebraska, parts of Iowa, Missouri and Kansas.

A Blizzard Warning remained in effect early Monday from northeast Missouri into southeast Wisconsin and northeast IL, including the Chicago area.

Flight-tracking website FlightAware reports more than 1,200 flights headed to or from the US were canceled on one of the busiest travel days of the year.

The National Weather Service Quad Cities office posted a video of a weather balloon being released in a blizzard.

Kansas City International Airport was closed to flights arriving on the airfield due to low visibility caused by weather conditions but reopened Sunday evening, according to its Twitter account.

Whiteout conditions brought low visibility to the small town of Chariton, Iowa, which is an hour south of Des Moines.

Other parts of the central Plains and Great Lakes region were under a winter storm warning that could see a foot or more of snow dumped in some places by the end of the day.

North of Chicago, the city of Evanston's police department said in a statement its power had been knocked out by the storm, although it was still able to receive 911 calls. Snowfall totals were expected to be 15cm to 30cm across those areas. At Midway International Airport, 124 flights had been canceled and 80 more were delayed. "It's pretty treacherous travel conditions", she said.

The major metropolitan areas in the Northeast will see wind and rain Monday into Tuesday.

And an approximately 60-mile stretch of Interstate 70 in Kansas has been closed, according to a tweet from the state's Department of Transportation, from WaKeeney to Russell. Sustained winds of between 30 and 45 miles per hour are anticipated in some areas, with the possibility of 65 miles per hour gusts.
