Snow blankets Chicago as winter storm sweeps US Midwest

Several of the states expecting the heaviest snowfall are now issuing storm warnings, including in Ohio, Michigan, Northern Indiana, Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin, and Eastern Iowa, and thousands of flights have been canceled. Those could bring another 3 to 9 inches total.

Chicago could get around a foot of snow - 8 to 14 inches - by late Friday, plus 4 more inches through the weekend, forecasters said.

Both Chicago and Detroit are in the cross hairs of the storm, and widespread flight delays and cancellations are likely at both cities' airports. More than 260 flights were canceled at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus, Michigan.

Ice and snow covered Chicago's expressways, where there were at least 25 crashes overnight, the Chicago Tribune reported.

While it isn't too bad the most major delays seem to be flights to Ohio, Illinois especially flights to Chicago and to cities in MI like Kalamazoo, Lansing and Alpena.

Most school districts cancelled classes on Friday before any snow started falling, including the Chicago Public Schools.

The storm system is coming down from Montana and is expected to arrive around the dinner hour this evening.




Schools in Detroit shut for the day along with Wayne State University in Detroit and other schools across MI.

The Winter Storm warning for heavy snow accumulating up to a foot, possibly more in spots over Chicago area counties along and north of Interstate-80 has been moved up to noon CST Friday.

Schools in Chicago and MI announced cancellations ahead of Winter Storm Mateo.

Plan on hard travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Friday.

Meteorologist Heather Orow, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, said the storm is "generally going to be an issue for travel".

"Our city is tackling the first major snow storm we have seen in several years - and it's clear that Chicagoans are rising to the challenge", Emanuel said in the statement.
