The Colors Spread
In Wichita and Omaha, try to have your travel completed by 11pm Wednesday evening. In Kansas City, by 4pm Thursday. Icing conditions may develop in northern Illinois, including Chicago, on Thursday, so more problems are likely at the Chicago airports. Iowa will also see freezing rain with potential ice storm conditions as winds increase in speed Thursday.
Please take this storm seriously and plan your travel around the weather.
UPDATE: 6:55pm Central. Before this storm is finished, I believe the following interstate highways will be closed at one location or another: 29, 35, 135, 70, 80, 90 and, possibly, 76. If you travel the Kansas Turnpike, you can check out the live weather displays, powered by WeatherData®, at the major rest stops.
