Chicago airlines cancel 800 flights as snow falls

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago's two airports have canceled about 800 flights because of a snow storm that's expected to dump up to 8 inches of snow in northern Illinois.

The Chicago Department of Aviation said in a recorded message on Monday that most of the cancellations were proactive.

The Illinois Department of Transportation said the storm was creating dangerous driving conditions and urged motorists to be careful.

The National Weather Service says the winter storm warning was in effect Monday for Illinois north of Bloomington to the Wisconsin state line. Forecasters say little or no snow is expected in southern Illinois because of higher temperatures.

Areas of northern Illinois were expecting up to 8 inches with 5 inches in central Illinois. Illinois State University canceled classes starting at 5 p.m. on Monday.
