Less than a week after a historic blizzard, Kansas is bracing for another. The storm, which brought strong winds to the Texas Panhandle, could leave more than a foot of snow.

The central plains states that got walloped last Thursday with a foot or more of snow will get hit for the second time in less than a week late Monday as a new system from the Rocky Mountains travels across the Texas Panhandle on its way to the Northeast.
The National Weather Service (NWS) reports the storm will deliver seven to 15 inches of snow through central Oklahoma, central Kansas, and northwest Missouri – the same area that is just now getting back to normal following last week’s storm.
Jim Keeney, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says that it is “unusual” for two weather systems to follow the same pattern in such a short time.
