Almost 500 flights canceled due to winter storm

ABC News Snow will move into the Kansas City Mo. Des Moines Iowa and Chicago areas on Sunday

As far as snowfall totals, Manhattan is expected to receive between 2 to 4 inches of snow.

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

The affected areas include Cook, DuPage, Kendall, Grundy and Will counties, the National Weather Service said in a winter storm warning. Some areas can even see higher snow totals than forecasted if heavy banding continues in the same locations.

Heavy snow is falling Sunday morning in parts of Nebraska and Kansas, with it eventually moving into Iowa. But once we get to Sunday, it will be parts of the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes that get blanketed by up to a foot of snow.

The service upgraded a winter storm warning to a blizzard warning around 11:30 a.m. Sunday. "The really heavy stuff will pick up after 6 p.m. and we will see a period of really heavy snowfall and strong winds". Forecasters predict more than a foot of snow is likely in southeast Nebraska, northeast Kansas, northwest Missouri and southwest Iowa. Light snow was also predicted for Tuesday.

The release, from the Kansas Army National Guard, said that extreme blowing snow "will drastically limit visibility to those on affected Kansas roadways".

Chicago is under a winter storm warning, with 3 to 6 inches of snow possible along with gusty winds.

More than 18,000 customers had lost electric power by early Sunday afternoon as a threatened blizzard packing winds near 50 miles per hour began knocking down power lines.

"This storm is expected to hit at a time when millions of people are on the roads, heading home after visiting friends and family", Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn said in a statement.
