Storm dumps snow on Rockies, tornado threat in Midwest
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A storm system that dropped a foot of snow in the Rockies was making travel hazardous as it headed east on Wednesday, menacing the Plains with heavy snow and threatening turbulent weather — even tornadoes — in parts of the Midwest.
The system was expected to affect more than 36.5 million people from Colorado through Ohio and from Texas north through Michigan. The National Weather Service issued tornado watches for most of the day in parts of Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Iowa.
The storm left Denver covered in 5 inches of snow on Wednesday, and Colorado highway patrol troopers reported several crashes north of the city on windy, icy Interstate 25 near the Wyoming border. Wyoming authorities also shut down large sections of roadways.
The Nebraska State Patrol reported several minor accidents involving vehicles sliding off icy or slushy roadways, but no injuries have been reported.
Alan Salyards said truckers coming through his Flying J Travel Plaza near Big Springs, a Nebraska town along the Colorado boarder, didn't seem especially concerned. He said plow trucks were working all morning to keep the roads passable.
"The drivers are just doing their normal thing," he said.
At Denver International Airport, spokesman Heath Montgomery said airlines canceled about 50 flights in anticipation of the bad weather — out of the airport's 1,500 daily flights — and ground crews kept up with the snowfall. No major delays were reported.
The back side of the fast-moving system will run into more cold air over Kansas and Nebraska, leaving behind up to 8 inches of snow in some spots, said Jared Guyer, a forecaster with the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center.
As the system spreads east, its southern portion will run into warmer, humid air and raise the potential for severe thunderstorms and even tornadoes, he said.
"It's definitely a chance of severe weather, a severe weather risk no doubt worth paying attention to," he said.
A winter storm warning or blizzard warning was in effect through Wednesday for parts of Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas. Sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph were expected, with gust up to 55 or even 60 mph.
The weather service cited the potential for white-out conditions and urged people to stay home.
At Pi Kappa Cino Coffee in Sterling, a town in far northeast Colorado, workers were checking their heaters and stocking up on coffee Tuesday to handle the first significant snowfall of the season.
"We always try to keep prepared for the winter, keeping extra water on hand and checking the heaters," owner Patricia Prescott said. "Business normally picks up because everyone wants our warm drinks."

Tornados in South, snow, sleet in East; record heat in West
CENTURY, Fla. (AP) -- A treacherous mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain turned morning commutes to icy misery Tuesday for many returning from a long holiday weekend in the Northeast, a day after suspected twisters tore through parts of the South.
At least three deaths were reported on slick roads, all in Virginia, and motorists battled hazardous road conditions over a wide area from the Mid-Atlantic states through Pennsylvania to northern New England.
In the West, California and Arizona braced for more record warm temperatures after basking in the high 80s and low 90s on Monday. Millions along the East Coast, meanwhile, were still shivering from a deep freeze.
In Washington, the federal government was opening three hours late after freezing rain coated the capital city in ice — atop the several inches of snow that fell Monday. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management, which sets leave for 300,000 federal workers, said employees also could opt for unscheduled leave or telework.
Messy snow, sleet and freezing rain made driving hazardous around the Northeast. Separate tractor-trailer crashes within miles of each other shut the Thruway in upstate New York near Albany for a while Tuesday morning. Authorities later reopened most lanes.
In northeastern Pennsylvania, a crash involving several cars and tractor-trailers is caused a pileup that closed Interstate 81 before dawn Tuesday. Only minor injuries were reported. Roads in the area were icy after recent snow turned to freezing rain.
Buffalo's public works department called in extra crews to remove fresh overnight snowfall. The National Weather Service said accumulations could range from 2 to 4 inches in the Hudson Valley to 18 inches between Rochester and Buffalo.
In the South, suspected tornados associated with the big storm system turned several homes to rubble Monday in the northwest corner of Florida's Panhandle and in Mississippi. Authorities say more than a dozen homes were destroyed in both states. There were no immediate reports of any deaths or serious injuries from the reported twisters.
One of three apparent twisters swept through Century, a rural town in the northwest Florida Panhandle, destroying or significantly damaging about 10 homes, Escambia County spokeswoman Joy Tsubooka said.
Donald Pugh was at home in Century when the funnel tore through his neighborhood of small wood-frame houses and mobile homes, downing trees. Pugh told The Associated Press that he and other neighbors used a chain saw to free a 94-year-old woman, stuck under a twisted metal door and other debris of her home.
"It took us quite a while," he said. "She was telling us where she was and that she was OK," Pugh added.
The woman was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
In Mississippi, windows were blown out of cars and two gymnasiums and a library were damaged Monday at a K-12 school in Wesson where children were in attendance when heavy thunderstorms and a possible tornado crossed at least 19 counties. No students were hurt.
In Virginia, State Police said they responded to at least three fatal crashes on icy roads, a fraction of nearly 100 crashes reported statewide. Two utility companies reported thousands of people without power early Tuesday.
Police say a Virginia trooper and two other people were on the median of Route 288 in Chesterfield County near Richmond when they were hit by a vehicle Monday evening, throwing one person into a nearby firefighter. Police said that person was pronounced dead and the trooper and the second person were taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
In Virginia's Fauquier County, police said, a 63-year-old man was killed Monday when his SUV hit a snow plow. In Loudoun County, a woman was killed Monday night when her car rear-ended a backhoe, according to police.
In several Northeastern cities — including New York, Boston and Hartford, Connecticut — temperatures had dipped Sunday below zero, falling to minus 40 on Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Many communities were expecting warmer temperatures to follow.
In the West, Arizona and California were baking in the heat: It was 89 on Monday in downtown Los Angeles, breaking 1977's record of 88. The National Weather Service forecast that Phoenix would hit highs of 89 Tuesday and 92 Wednesday, above the previous records of 84 and 88 degrees, respectively.
In Orange County, Santa Ana hit 94, well above the 89 recorded in 1977.
In Phoenix, Arizona, the fire department issued hot weather safety tips — such as not leaving children or pets unattended in vehicles, staying hydrated, and scheduling outdoor activities in the cooler morning and evening hours.
US tornadoes kill 3
Feb 24, 2016 - Several tornadoes struck Louisiana and Mississippi, killing 3 and injuring others as the storms destroyed homes and businesses and toppled a water tower. More severe weather was expected as the storm system moved east.

About 31,000 customers were without power in Louisiana.
