Along the shore of Lake Michigan in both Chicago and in, the National Weather Service warned of flooding on Monday and said that waves could reach between 12 to 16 feet along the Cook County shore and 14 to 18 feet along the in shore.

By Monday morning, many areas from the Plains to the Midwest will have seen 6 to 10 inches of snow, CNN meteorologist Michael Guy said.

However, heavy snow will still continue through the early hours of Monday morning-with blizzard warnings still in effect through 6am local time from northeast Missouri northward into southeast Wisconsin/northeast IL, including the greater Chicago area. "We strongly recommend that you postpone travel plans, if possible, however, if you must be on the road, make sure your vehicle's emergency kit is stocked, your gas tank is full and your cell phone and charger are with you and someone knows your travel plans".

"The Kansas Department of Transportation has reported multiple road closures due to visibility including I-70 eastbound and westbound from Salina to WaKeeney", Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer said in a statement.

The National Weather Service Quad Cities office posted a video of a weather balloon being released in a blizzard.

Similar problems have also been reported at Kansas City Airport, with the airport experiencing 5.3 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service.
