Blizzard Southwest, A storm system will bring significant winter weather from the Southwest through the central and southern Plains Monday and into Tuesday.
Portions of eastern Arizona through New Mexico, the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles, Kansas, and southeastern Colorado will see snow accumulations of up to 6 to 12 inches, with areas of locally heavier snowfall.
In addition to snowfall, the storm will bring strong wind gusts greater than 40 mph, leading to blizzard conditions. Winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings will remain in effect for eastern Arizona and western New Mexico, while winter storm watches and blizzard warnings remain in effect for much of eastern New Mexico through the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles, Kansas, and southeastern Colorado.
By the late afternoon and evening, thunderstorms affecting eastern Texas will have a slight chance of turning severe, with an isolated/marginal damaging wind and tornado threat.
Outside of this region, rain showers will form ahead of the cold front extending from the southern Plains through the Ohio Valley and into the Lower Great Lakes.
