Latest Midwest snow wave delays flights, makes driving tough

Weather Snow is over quiet Thursday

After Sunday's snowfall, the longest consecutive streak of measurable snow on record in the Windy City has been tied.

The National Weather Service issued winter-weather warnings and advisories across the upper Midwest. "We still have several hours left of this heavier snow".

City officials announced school closures in Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee because of the weather.

Winter weather this week killed people in accidents in the Midwest, including six in Iowa, two in Missouri and one in Montana, local media in those states reported. The central and northern Rockies also will see heavy snow, the weather service said. Reports are sparse, but it appears around 3-inches of new snow has accumulated at many locations - lighter snow possibly mixed with a little freezing rain/drizzle farther south of Interstate-80.

While we won't break the record for the most consecutive days of snow ever recorded, motorists will be pleased to start the work week without facing wintry driving conditions with snow-covered roads and reduced visibilities.

For most of northern IL, a few inches of accumulation are likely. "I saw the plows come by, so I figured I'd get a jump on it so I wouldn't have to shovel it when it's 4 feet high".

About 750 flights were canceled at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and about 300 flights were canceled at Midway, the Chicago Department of Aviation reported Friday.

A section of Interstate 94 in southwestern MI was blocked after dozens of vehicles crashed.
