Major winter storm pounds U.S. Midwest

Heavy snowfall threatens to bring travel to a standstill. More than 1,000 flights canceled. Schools closed in Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee.

The storm system, which stretches from Montana to Michigan, could drop up to 14 inches (36 cm) of snow in some areas, the National Weather Service said.

The heavy snow is forecast to move into upstate New York and New England by early tomorrow.

Wind chill temperatures are expected to drop below zero (below -18 C) in many areas.

The central and northern Rockies also will see heavy snow, the weather service said.

  1. It was sort of odd the Chicago Tribune declared the storm over this morning, it hasn’t stopped streaming or training over the city for hours since. It will be a foot of snow somewhere thereabouts for sure, even though they said it was only 5 inches. Wishful thinking maybe. It’s a very narrow band of snow over the city,again, I’d say not an accident.
