Midwestern states brace for winter storm to hit the region

13 January, 2019, 12:19 | Author: Carlos George
  • While the storm will spare the heavily populated Northeast it likely will disrupt air and auto travel from Kansas City to Indianapolis and will bring the heaviest snowfall so far this winter to Cincinnati and the Ohio River Valley

KOMU reported a plane slid off the runway at the Columbia Regional Airport in Missouri on Friday due to icy conditions.

A massive winter storm, stretching from the Great Plains to the East Coast, is dumping snow and causing hundreds of traffic accidents as thousands shelter under winter storm warnings. A half inch of ice and 3 to 5 inches of snow are predicted.

Yet more snow is forecast, and the Weather Channel is predicting that St Louis could see one of it's heaviest 2 two-day snowfall events on record.

The storm was pretty much over by late afternoon when the Kansas City Chiefs hosted the Indianapolis Colts in an National Football League playoff game, but seats in Arrowhead Stadium were still covered in snow and fans tailgated under tents in the stadium parking lot. The snow had tapered off by the time the game started mid afternoon, but stadium crews worked for hours before the game to clear the stadium's lot, field and seats in anticipation of a full house for the playoff game.

Areas to the east could get about 6 inches (15 cm) with ice developing in Kansas, and Arkansas, and up to 4 inches (10 cm) of snow in Washington, D.C., before the system heads out to sea late on Sunday, AccuWeather said.

In Kansas City, Missouri, "we are up to 7.2 inches of snow so far with this storm", the local National Weather Service office said at 7 a.m. ET. Illinois State Police said troopers along the Mississippi River across from St. Louis have responded to more than 100 crashes during the storm. The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDoT) on Twitter warned residents not to travel in the storm if it isn't necessary.

St. Louis Lambert International Airport spokesman Jeff Lea says airlines are canceling dozens of flights through Saturday morning.

The University of Missouri men's basketball game at the University of SC was also canceled Saturday because of weather-related travel issues, according to the team's Twitter account.

Along with Washington and Baltimore, Philadelphia is predicted to get 1 to 2 inches of snow, and there is a possibility of light accumulation in NY along the storm's northern edge. Forecasters said heavy snow could fall in mountain areas north of Interstate 64, such as Charlottesville and Staunton, Virginia.
