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

Warm temps and relatively clear weather will start the day before rain moves into the area and, as temperatures drop, rain will turn to snow.

By 7 p.m., some flights were departing KCI.

Then the advisory extends to Oakland, Livingston, Lapeer and Genesee Counties at 1 a.m. Monday.

The weather service cautions people traveling to watch for hazardous driving conditions during the morning commute - with a reduction in visibility from falling snow. The worst of the snow will likely be confined there.

A wintry storm brought blizzard-like conditions to parts of the Midwest early Monday, grounding hundreds of flights and causing some road traffic chaos as commuters returned to work after the Thanksgiving weekend.

The National Weather Service said that 3 to 9 inches fell across northern Missouri on Sunday.

The storm dumped more than a foot of snow over parts of IL, bringing blizzard warnings across the greater Chicago area. Most were at Kansas City and Chicago's O'Hare International and Midway airports.

A Blizzard Warning remained in effect early Monday from northeast Missouri into southeast Wisconsin and northeast IL, including the Chicago area. The National Weather Service was warning those conditions would make travel hard in places.

The winter storm dumped 5.8 inches of snow at KCI Sunday, setting a record daily snow fall.

"The Kansas Department of Transportation has reported multiple road closures due to visibility including I-70 eastbound and westbound from Salina to WaKeeney", Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer said in a statement. That included semitrailer trucks jackknifed across the highway.

Heavy snow continued through the early hours of Monday, slamming the Chicago area with up to a foot (30 centimeters) of snow.

Strong winds and snow created blizzard conditions across much of Nebraska and parts of Kansas, Iowa and Missouri.

The Monday morning commute here will be slow and treacherous - snow and winds persisting closer-in during the early-morning hours, and then gradually diminishing as the center of low pressure fades off to the east. Lake shore flooding will be likely right along and just inland of the IL and Indiana Lake Michigan shoreline.

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