Airlines also have cancelled hundreds of flights at O'Hare and Midway airports.

Kieran Sheridan, chief operating officer for the Chicago Department of Aviation, said in a Friday press conference that the city's airports were "well-prepared".

A one-two winter storm punch that started Friday - stretching from Montana through the Rockies, Plains and upper Midwest - will dump more snow and freezing rain through much of the northern tier of country this weekend.

Midday Sunday, light snow will taper off and by the end of the weekend - parts of Chicago area could see a total of more than a foot of snow on the ground over the week, including 1-3 inches of accumulation from the snowfall late Tuesday night into Wednesday, according to the news outlet. It could put down up to 6 inches of snow.

Eight inches was reported in parts of northern IL and up to about 6 inches was reported the Chicago area.

The expectation of up to 12 inches (30 centimeters) around Chicago prompted officials to close the city's public schools to about 390,000 students Friday. CPS officials said Friday morning they expected classes to resume Monday.
