Click here to see the latest reports of the severe weather and blizzard conditions across the south-central U.S.
The second storm in less than a week will continue to affect parts of Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas with blizzard conditions and dangerous travel into Tuesday night.
The storm has the potential to bring a foot of snow to parts of the High Plains.
According to AccuWeather Meteorologist Becky Elliott, "The combination of this heavy snow falling and very strong wind gusts will create blizzard conditions."
Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are possible at times. At the same time, wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph can occur.
As temperatures plunge below freezing and the rate of snow increases, road conditions will become slushy and snow-covered.
Windswept snow and slippery travel will advance across central areas of Kansas and Nebraska, including along portions of I-70 and I-80.
Blowing and drifting snow will spell out trouble for people who plan on driving during this time. Visibility will be greatly reduced on area roadways. Drivers are urged to reconsider travel plans due to the dangerous conditions.
AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures at the height of the storm will dip into the single digits in the mountains and the teens on the Plains.
The combination of heavy snow and gusty winds will knock some trees down. Some communities may be put in the dark due to power outages.
"All of the components are in place for eastern Colorado to receive at least a half a foot of snow, with locations along the Palmer Divide and from northeast New Mexico to southwest Nebraska to receive a foot or more," Elliott said.
The storm will spread windswept snow farther south, when compared to the storm last week. Snow with wind will blast portions of southeastern Colorado and northeastern New Mexico.
The storm will spawn severe weather across the southern Plains and bring the risk of flooding to some of the Mississippi Valley states into Wednesday.
In the wake of the storm, temperatures will rebound and snow will melt at lower elevations from the Rockies to the High Plains during the middle of the week.
