Blizzard to Hit Southwest Plains Today

The National Weather Service is predicting blizzard conditions in parts of New Mexico, the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles, southwestern Kansas and southeastern Colorado, with winter storm warnings in effect in areas from eastern Arizona up to southwestern Wisconsin.

According to a report by the Washington Post, as much as 15 inches of snow could blanket an area centered on the Oklahoma panhandle and including southwestern Nebraska and northeastern New Mexico; parts of Kansas and the Texas panhandle are also included in the storm’s oval-shaped center. The total area expected to experience severe storms if not blizzard conditions includes virtually all reservations in New Mexico, parts of the Navajo Nation, the Fort Apache and White Mountain Apache reservations, and the Kickapoo, Kickapoo/Sac and Fox, and Prairie Band of Potawatomi Nation Reservations in eastern Kansas.

Kerry Jones, a weather service forecaster in Albuquerque, NM, discussed the hardest hit areas with the Washington Post. “Those are tremendous amounts of snow,” Jones said. “Add to that the fact that that snow is going to be blowing, and you’re going to have winds easily in the 40 mph range if not higher, it’s going to be a very ugly, potentially life-threatening situation.”
