A range of precipitation was forecast Monday for the country's midsection, including heavy snow, ice and blustery winds in parts of 11 states and heavy rain in already-waterlogged parts of Missouri and Arkansas.

The system caused nearly 900 flights to be canceled — more than a third of which were at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport — and another 500 to be delayed, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware. A typical day sees about 150 cancelations and 4,000 delays.
