O’Hare, Midway Flight Delays and Cancellations Amid Winter Storm Warning

Weather service increases snow totals in southeast Nebraska southwest Iowa and northwest Missouri

Blizzard and winter storm warnings, along with winter weather advisories and winter storm watches are in effect across the central High Plains eastward into the Middle Mississippi Valley and portions of the upper Great Lakes. Roads across the southern portion of Iowa were snow-covered, and strong winds created risky travel conditions, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation.

Major cities including Kansas City, Mo., and Chicago are expecting heavy snow on Sunday. Right now, the biggest storm on record dropped 12 inches on the city between November 25 and November 26 1895, according to the weather service.

All McHenry County school districts announced Sunday night that schools would be closed Monday. This snow is coming from a low pressure area/system that recently formed over the southern Rockies. This is the corridor where a widespread 8-12 inches of white will be possible.

Chicago was under a winter storm warning, with 3 to 6 inches of snow and gusty winds forecast. The temperature was 26 degrees at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, with winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour producing a wind-chill factor of 10 degrees. The previous record was 6.6 inches in 1995, the weather service said.

Other crashes were reported across the county on police scanners.

Jeremy Corbyn said it would not have the backing of Labour, meaning May lacks enough Parliamentary backers to get the deal through.

Drivers were told not to try to go west because they would be turned around.

"This storm is expected to hit at a time when millions of people are on the roads, heading home after visiting friends and family", Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn said in a statement. "Please take all necessary precautions, including altering travel plans to leave early or asking yourself if your trip can wait". Areas of north central and northeast Kansas received even more.

But perhaps the biggest overall impact to air travelers was in Chicago, where more than 790 combined arrivals and departures had been canceled as of 10:20 p.m. ET at the city's busy O'Hare airport.

The weather already is responsible for the cancellation of almost 400 flights from area airports, and transportation officials said vehicle travel will be hazardous as well. If the current track holds, that would likely cause significant delays and cancellations at both Chicago airports Sunday and Monday, which could have nationwide consequences.
