Winter Storm Bruce: School Closures, Cancelled Flights

Winter Storm Bruce: School Closures, Cancelled Flights

The storm shut down 235 miles of Interstate 70 in Kansas for several hours on Sunday, as well as a portion of Interstate 29 from Mound City, Missouri, to the state's border with Iowa.

The largest two-day snowfall the city has seen in the month of November happened in 1895, when Chicago got a foot of snow from Nov. 25 to 26.

"The winter storm that has dropped over a foot of snow across the Mississippi Valley northward into the Upper Great Lakes will begin winding down later this morning [November 26]", the service said in a forecast.

Other airports that showed flight delays due to weather included Newark in New Jersey, LaGuardia in NY and Boston Logan International.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for Genesee, Huron, Lapeer, Saginaw, Sanilac, Shiawassee and Tuscola counties through 3 p.m. Monday. Monday morning there are a few delays and it is for flights headed to Chicago.

The National Weather Service said that seven to 20 cm fell across northern Missouri on Sunday. State police at noon reported likely blizzard conditions should exist by about 6 p.m. today (Sunday) and into the night. It was re-opened by Sunday afternoon. Coupled with a gusty northwest wind, power outages and tree damage also are possibilities. Cities more north like Flint and Saginaw could see more than 6 inches. Stay in your vehicle if you do become stuck.

Roads were slick in northern in early Monday after about 2 inches (5 centimeters) of snow fell, and more was forecast through the afternoon.




"The combination of increasing winds, heavy snow and poor visibility will create localized blizzard conditions at times", added AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

The flight-tracking website FlightAware reported 875 flights headed to or from the US were canceled.

Part of Interstate 80 in Nebraska was closed Sunday morning after multiple accidents in the snowy conditions. That included semitrailers jackknifed across the highway.

The storm also made holiday travel treacherous on the roads and miserable for air travelers in the Midwest starting over the weekend and continuing into Monday.

Kluber said the storm was expected to hit the Chicago region sometime Sunday evening.

Most of the cancellations were of flights departing or arriving at Chicago O'Hare International Airport and Chicago Midway Airport, which combined saw a total of about 900 flights cancelled. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely risky.
