Winter Storm Bruce Heads East After Dumping Snow Throughout Midwest

Millions under blizzard warning as winter storm impacts holiday travel

The National Weather Service warned residents to take care as the winter storm continues to batter states throughout Monday.

A strong early winter storm hit the Midwest Sunday into Monday, causing widespread flight cancellations and unsafe road conditions.

A blizzard and winter storm warning was in effect through 6 a.m. on Monday across northeast Missouri and into southeast Wisconsin and northeast IL, including the greater Chicago area. "We strongly recommend that you postpone travel plans, if possible, however, if you must be on the road, make sure your vehicle's emergency kit is stocked, your gas tank is full and your cell phone and charger are with you and someone knows your travel plans".

Roads in much of Nebraska and the southern half of Iowa remained covered in snow and ice early Monday, even after the storm had passed those states.

Unsettled weather has forced the cancelation of hundreds of flights across the Midwest in one of the busiest travel periods of the year, with tens of thousands of people reporting power outages. Kansas City International Airport got 5.3 inches of snow, and at least 7 inches of snow was reported in Rockford, Illinois. Streets were dark, and many were without power, he said. More than 150 flights due to depart from Chicago's O'Hare Airport were cancelled early Monday, according to the site. The National Weather Service was warning those conditions would make travel hard in places. Snowfall totals were expected to be 15cm to 30cm across those areas.

It's going to be a sloppy drive and unsafe at times this morning and most of the day due to blowing snow even when the moisture begins to cut off. Temps in the mid 30s falling to the low 30s with winds NNW 10-20 miles per hour gusting to 30 miles per hour at times.

Kluber said the storm was expected to hit the Chicago region sometime Sunday evening. "It's pretty treacherous travel conditions", she said. The state Department of Transportation reported several road closures Monday, mostly in the extreme northeast, but said a stretch of Interstate 70 that had been closed on Sunday was reopened. Wind reports from the Central Plains clocked wind gusts at tropical storm force from 50 to 75 miles per hour from Nebraska to Texas.

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