Have travel plans? Prepare for cold rain and snow

CHICAGO (AP) — A blanket of snow will cover the Great Lakes and the Northeast ahead of an expected dip into Arctic-cold temperatures.

The wintry weather mostly moved out of the Plains overnight, pushing further into Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.

The National Weather Service said Chicago will see an additional 3 to 5 inches Sunday. The city’s aviation website said more than 1,200 flights had been canceled at O’Hare and about 160 at Midway as of Sunday morning.

Detroit could see the heaviest amount of snow Sunday, about 8 inches. To the east, Cleveland could see up to 6 inches, while Burlington, Vermont, could get up to three.

The Ohio River valley and Mid-Atlantic will see a mix of snow, freezing rain and rain.

Temperatures 15 to 30 degrees below average will follow the cold rain and snow in the coming days through much of the Midwest and East.
