  • How Winter Storm Eboni Could Make Return Holiday Travel Messy for Millions of Americans

Forecasts call for ice and up to 2 to 12 inches of snow.

Whether it's snow, a wintry mix, or freezing rain, gusty winds will reduce visibility, and roads will be messy, so travel will be poor across the Northland through Thursday.

The Nebraska Transportation Department said Friday nearly two-thirds of Nebraska highways were partially or fully covered with snow.

The Minnesota State Patrol said it responded to 167 crashes, 259 spinouts and 13 jackknifed semis on Thursday due to the heavy, blowing snow that began late Wednesday.

Atlanta, home of the world's busiest airport, could get up to 6 inches of rain by the end of this weekend - potentially snarling holiday travel. Over 50 million people remain under flood and flash flood watches from New Jersey down to Louisiana.

A severe storm system has caused blizzard conditions throughout the Midwest and heavy rainfall in the South. Wind gusts in the Albuquerque metro area and Santa Fe are expected to reach up to 60 miles per hour causing blowing snow and whiteout conditions.

FCC to investigate CenturyLink as nationwide outage continues, 911 calls disrupted
Colorado: The nationwide outages led to dropped 911 calls in northern Colorado as well, according to The Greeley Tribune . A Nationwide outage reaching from NY to California has been causing headaches since early Thursday morning.

Most of central Nebraska is in a winter weather warning and much of the western and eastern thirds of the state are in a Winter Weather advisory lasting until Friday morning.

The storm was expected to weaken last night into this morning (Friday).

Bus service for Fargo, N.D., and neighboring Moorhead, Minn., was suspended Thursday afternoon because of worsening road conditions. The crash involved a commercial vehicle and a passenger auto, Trooper Tod Hileman said.

In Kansas, blizzard conditions closed a 75-mile stretch on Interstate 70 from Colby to WaKeeney as well as roads from west of Garden City to the Colorado state line.

Heavy rain and strong winds will combine to make travel hard by air or road Friday in the parts of the East.
