Snowfall was winding down in the Chicago area early Monday, following a blizzard that caused white-out conditions and dumped up to a foot of snow as millions of travelers headed home at the end of the holiday weekend.

Areas north of M-59 are under a Winter Storm Warning until 3 p.m. for 5-8 inches of snow and blowing snow most of the day.

In the Midwest, blizzard-like conditions swept down from the Great Lakes, blanketing Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Wisconsin and Nebraska.

The wet snow will make roadways slick and weigh down power lines or tree limbs.

Whiteout conditions closed Interstate 70 through most of Kansas nearly all-day Sunday.

In neighboring Missouri, Interstate 29 is closed near the Iowa border.
