Washington, where many federal government offices are closed due to the USA government shutdown, is expected to receive 15 cm to 20 cm of snow from this storm, according to the National Weather Service.

The Missouri Department of Transportation warned residents not to travel in the storm if it wasn't necessary.

Missouri had gotten the worst of the storm by Saturday, with the National Weather Service reporting more than a foot (30.48 centimeters) of snow Saturday morning in some places around St. Louis and Jefferson City, and more than 18 inches (45 centimeters) in Columbia.

The University of Missouri men's basketball game at the University of SC was also canceled Saturday because of weather-related travel issues, according to the team's Twitter account. Washington and Baltimore were added to the list of advisories, watches and warnings Friday afternoon.

The storm moved into Kansas and Nebraska from the Rockies on Friday, then east into Missouri and IL, covering roads and making driving risky.

Dozens of flights were canceled at St. Louis Lambert International Airport, which described the onslaught of snow on Twitter as one of its biggest single-day winter storms in years.

The latest amounts of snowfall saw Cook, Nebraska experience 11.8 inches, Bridgetown, Illinois 10.5 inches and Amy and Scott State Lake in Kansas nine inches.

Travel may be treacherous along Interstate 70 from the Kansas City area to St. Louis and along I-64 from St. Louis to Louisville, Kentucky.
