A swirling blizzard is sweeping across the southern Plains with heavy snow and high winds Monday, burying much of the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles under more than one foot of snow, which is wreaking chaos on roads and in the air.
The Great Falls Tribune reports that, “overnight Monday and through the day Tuesday, the storm will slowly slog to the north and east, bringing a swath of snow across Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan, the National Weather Service reported.”
Weather service meteorologist Robert Oravec wrote in an online bulletin that, “this storm will have a huge impact, with additional heavy snows likely over portions of eastern Kansas and northern Missouri which received very heavy snowfall amounts last week.”
According to the Great Falls Tribune, “the storm is being blamed for two deaths on Monday. In northwest Kansas, a 21-year-old man’s SUV hit an icy patch on Interstate 70 and overturned. And in the northwest town of Woodward, Okla., heavy snow caused a roof to collapse, killing one inside the home.”
Kansas City is expected to see the heaviest snow from the Texas Blizzard.
