As the second major winter storm in a week takes shape across the southern High Plains, heavy windswept snow will clobber areas from Amarillo north to Dodge City, Wichita and Kansas City through Monday.
Travel on the roads and in the air will likely be brought to a standstill in these areas during the height of the storm as snowfall reaches immobilizing rates of 2-4"/hr. Winds could gust as high as 50 or even 60 mph in some locations, leading to widespread and dangerous blowing, drifting and whiteouts.
