A winter storm started sweeping across the Midwest on Friday, leading to slick roads and runways, as it inched its way toward New England, where it was forecast to dump up to two feet of snow.

Nearly two thousand flights out of domestic airports have been canceled so far as the country braces itself for significant snow and ice, according to flight-tracking site FlightAware.com.

The storm led to slick roads and runways, as it inched its way toward New England, where it was forecast to dump up to two feet of snow over the long weekend for Martin Luther King Jr Day.

The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings from the Dakotas, across the Great Lakes states and into New England.

The weather service at one point warned that conditions in New England over the weekend ‘could approach blizzard criteria.’ Ice was also a possibility in some areas in the storm’s path.

In Nebraska, where freezing drizzle was falling Friday afternoon, authorities closed Omaha’s Eppley Airfield after a Southwest Airlines plane slid off an ice-slicked runway. No one was injured.
