CHICAGO -- A major weekend snowstorm is threatening to put a damper on Super Bowl plans.
Snow started falling late last night. Up to 14 inches is expected in some parts of the area by Monday morning.
And that's not all. Wind gusts as high as 40 miles-per-hour are expected this afternoon, turning this snowfall into a potential whiteout condition.
A winter blizzard warning takes effect at 2 p.m. until midnight.
Residents throughout the area hit the stores yesterday to stock up for the storm.
Police have issued travel warnings in Will, Kendall and Grundy counties.
IDOT deployed 1,700 plows across the state.
February is starting off with below-average low temperatures, with highs in the teens expected through much of the week.
