Snowstorm closes schools, grounds flights, triggers state of emergency

MIDWEST SNOWSTORM CHICAGO

One of the worst November snowstorms in Chicago history hammered the city and suburbs Sunday night and early Monday, dumping more than 7 inches in the city, and up to a foot in some northwest suburbs.

As the storm passed through Kansas on Sunday evening, the National Weather Service lifted blizzard warnings from the state and declared them in parts of northeast Missouri, including St. Louis, north IL, including Chicago, and southeast Wisconsin.

The weather service cautioned that snow, sleet and strong winds will create slick roads, poor visibility and unsafe travel leading into the morning.

Dozens of school districts in Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, and Iowa also cancelled school because of the weather.

The storm canceled 1,270 flights on Sunday for travelers trying to get home after the Thanksgiving weekend.

The team said Warriors team physicians ruled out a severe injury based on X-rays from the left knee and below. He made both his 3-point tries on the way to 18 points.

The site reported that the majority of the cancellations are flights that were supposed to be routed through Chicago or Kansas City - two areas forecast to be hit hard by the storm. More than 800 flights were canceled at O'Hare and Midway airports on Sunday.

Oravec said Kansas and Chicago were likely to see "high impact" blizzard conditions later today.

Further south, Gov. Jeff Colyer declared a state of emergency in Kansas on Sunday after 2 to 14 inches (5 to 36 centimeters) of snow fell in parts of the state.

The airport was forced to close for several hours due to low visibility and heavy snow, as maintenance crews had to clear the runway. But south of Wisconsin, up to a foot of snow was expected in Chicago, including wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour (80 kph). McHenry County saw the largest bouts of snow with some parts receiving around 13.1 inches, the National Weather Service reported.

Part of Interstate 80 is closed in eastern Nebraska because of multiple accidents after snow blanketed the area.

Holiday Storm Chances and Travel Forecast
The coldest air in North America is coming to NY and Boston for Thanksgiving , and driving up power prices in the Northeast. Temperatures reaching the teens area wide, with wind chills in the single digits by morning.

Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for norther counties: Lapeer, Saginaw, Sanilac, etc.

See the precipitation the Midwest received from the storm, according to the National Weather Service. That included semitrailer trucks jackknifed across the highway.

In neighboring Missouri, Interstate 29 is closed near the Iowa border.

Planes were grounded at the airports in Kansas City, Missouri; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Omaha, Nebraska, Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The storm is expected to hit IN and MI early Monday.

Marcus Rashford deadline for lucrative deal set to thwart Real Madrid
One name which has come up for the same is Marcus Rashford , with The Sun reporting that Madrid are planning a £50 Million offer. Mourinho even admitted after United's 3-2 win over Newcastle last month that Rashford cut a "sad" figure on the pitch.

North of Chicago, the city of Evanston's police department said in a statement its power had been knocked out by the storm, although it was still able to receive 911 calls. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely risky.
