Winter Weather Advisory: Messy Morning Commute Expected Around Metro Detroit

KQ2 Forecast: Blizzard Warning in effect for entire KQ2 Viewing Area Snow Storm Underway in Southern Iowa
| 27 November, 2018, 05:02

Schools in parts of Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and IL called off Monday classes. "Heavy snow of 5 to 10" with some locally higher amounts are possible.

A board shows cancelled flights due to a snow storm at the Newark Liberty International Airport on November 15, 2018 in Newark, New Jersey.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for parts of Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Iowa.

Bridget Fortner, who was trying to get to Newark, New Jersey with her family had to connect through Chicago and had their original flight canceled.

Because of the poor weather conditions in Kansas City, RideKC announced it was suspending service at 6 p.m. The action came as a large stretch of Interstate 70, spanning much of the state, was closed between Junction City and WaKeeney.

The National Weather Service said that 3 to 9 inches fell across northern Missouri on Sunday. It was re-opened by Sunday afternoon. Winds will ramp up, temperatures will drop, and school delays/cancellations are likely along with scattered power outages.

With winds that gusted up to 50 miles per hour at times, the storm knocked down trees and power lines across the Chicago area, leaving hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses without power. Parts of Interstate 80 between Lincoln and Omaha in eastern Nebraska were closed at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend, as a result of multiple accidents on the snow-covered road.


Iowa City, where travel already is challenging, could see 4 to 8 inches and Cedar Rapids 2 to 4 inches before morning - although forecasters said those numbers have question marks because they're near that line.

"If you need a tow or are injured, call 911", the department said in an alert.

The flight-tracking website FlightAware had reported earlier that 875 flights headed to or from the USA were cancelled.

Vehicles on area roads moved slowly due to the snow during the morning rush hour, but travel times improved as the day progressed, Illinois Department of Transportation spokesman Guy Tridgell said. That included semitrailers jackknifed across the highway.

By Monday morning, the storm was expected to hit parts of northern IN and southern MI.

"Expect the weather to roll in sometime this afternoon/early evening".

Monday's cancellations were caused by the inability by airlines to have aircraft in Kansas City for the morning flights, according to Kansas City International Airport. They say the unsafe conditions have made it impossible for road crews to be out.
