More than 2,000 U.S. flights, many of them into or out of Chicago, have been cancelled as the Midwest gets slammed with a major winter storm, CNN reported.

"This potent Midwest snowstorm has the potential to drop over a foot of snow in the Chicago region today and into Monday morning," said CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam. "The storm will pivot over the Windy City, causing several hours of heavy snow."

The National Weather Service has called for sleet and freezing rain will be falling along with the snow, as well as significant wind across Iowa, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin, with additional snow hitting further east and west Sunday into Monday.

On Twitter, Midwesterners had already started posting images from the snowstorm early Sunday afternoon.
