Winter storm to arrive Sunday afternoon, bringing snow, rain, sleet

The same storm has been pummelling the US for days as it moves cross country, dumping heavy snow from parts of California to the northern Midwest and inundating other areas with rain.

The companies have canceled 27 flights at O'Hare and two at Midway as people scramble to get home on the year's busiest travel weekend.

Meanwhile, in the Midwest, more than 700 flights were delayed or canceled on Sunday at airports in Chicago, Denver and Minneapolis, USA Today reported.

The highest snow totals will be well to our north, with Winter Storm Warnings posted for Green Bay and areas northward, where over a foot of snow could fall.

Roads were closed Saturday across eastern and southern Wyoming due to whiteout conditions.

Roads could be treacherous too, Accuweather warns, with heavy snow for much of the Hudson, Mohawk and CT river valleys with a few inches as far south as parts of the DE and Lehigh valleys.

Wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour created ground blizzards and below-zero wind chill temperatures in some areas.

So far, our winter storm has played out pretty close to forecast - Sunday has been quite wet to the south, and quite wintry to the north.

Heavy snow is expected in Berkshire County beginning 11 a.m. Sunday morning lasting through 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Blizzard conditions early Saturday buffeted the High Plains.

Parts of the Northern Plains into Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin could see snowfall of 6 to 12 inches, according to the National Weather Service, with some areas seeing as much as a foot and a half of snow. Duluth police officers were checking identification before allowing vehicles across the Aerial Lift Bridge; the restriction went into place late Saturday night as conditions deteriorated. NY will see up to 2 inches of snowfall an hour Sunday and Monday, it said, making for risky roads as the snow piles up.

The bodies of a boy and a girl, both 5, were found in central Arizona after their vehicle was swept away Friday while crossing a swollen creek.

Two adults and four other children were rescued by a helicopter, but a 6-year-old girl is still missing, officials said.

The NWS said that it expected a significant accumulation of ice in the Mid-Atlantic and parts of Appalachia.

One weather-related death was reported in South Dakota.

A brief lull is possible in some locations this evening, though steady snow is expected to resume after midnight tonight, forecasters said.

Hunterdon, Somerset and Mercer counties are now under a winter storm warning, joining Sussex, Warren, Passaic, Morris and western Bergen counties.

High winds and ice were making travel nearly impossible in some other places, however.

And as the storm moves east, travel into and out of East Coast destinations such as New York, Connecticut and MA on Sunday evening may be affected.
