Snowstorm Threatens Holiday Travel in Midwest

Monday, 19 Dec 2011 02:36 PM

 

WICHITA, Kansas — Blizzard warnings went up across wide sections of the U.S. Southwest and Great Plains on Monday, threatening holiday travel ahead of the Christmas weekend.

Warnings forecasting snowfalls of up to 18 inches stretched across the region as the storm barreled toward parts of New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado.

The storm was expected to disrupt holiday travel on major interstates in the region, including Interstate 35 in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas, interstates 25 and 40 in New Mexico and Interstate 70 across central Kansas.

The storm is expected to exit the region Tuesday.

The precipitation also could help ease a drought that has plagued Texas for more than year.
