A MI woman died in a vehicle crash Monday morning as a winter storm brought blizzard conditions to areas throughout the Midwest.

The National Weather Service downgraded the notice to a winter storm warning in Cook, DuPage and Will Counties.

The National Weather Service announced a blizzard warning Sunday afternoon to early Monday across most of northern IL, with the storm causing "life threatening travel conditions" Sunday night.

The cancellations come on the heels of more than 1,000 cancellations nationwide on Sunday because of the blizzard conditions in the Windy City.

The region could see whiteouts and slick roads throughout Sunday, making travel hard if not impossible at times, Brink said.

Forecasts say snowfall totals of 6 to 10 inches are possible across the Midwest.

The Illinois State Police, which responded to many spin-outs and collisions - but no reports of serious injuries - had a similar message to stay off the roads unless necessary, particularly since falling temperatures were expected to make the roads even more slippery. He said rain will give way to heavy snowfall and "near whiteout conditions" that will make for risky travel.

According to FlightAware.com, more than 3,000 flights in the United States have been canceled due to the wintry weather conditions over the past couple of days, and more than 10 million people are now under a blizzard warning. As of Monday morning, almost 700 flights were canceled at O'Hare International Airport, while Midway International Airport reported about 70 flights had been canceled, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation. The state Department of Transportation reported several road closures Monday, mostly in the extreme northeast, but said a stretch of Interstate 70 that had been closed on Sunday was reopened.

The major metropolitan areas in the Northeast will see wind and rain Monday into Tuesday.

The storm was also bringing wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour throughout northern IL, leading to whiteout conditions on area highways.
