DENVER (AP) - A fast-moving storm is promising to bring a white Christmas to parts of the West and Midwest, but it's threatening to cause long delays and tough driving conditions for holiday travelers.
The storm is expected to dump more than a foot of snow on parts of Colorado and Southern Utah by midday today, and blow east into the Plains states through Christmas Day. Blizzard warnings are likely in Kansas.
On Tuesday, blustery weather snarled traffic in Arizona, with blizzard-like conditions shutting down roads and causing a pileup involving 20 vehicles. South of Phoenix, a dust storm set off a series of collisions that killed at least three people.
In western Nebraska, a Colorado woman was killed Tuesday when her SUV apparently hit black ice and slid across a median.
In Nevada, snow blankets the Reno area and multiple wrecks have been reported.
