People in the Plains cannot get a break!

Just days after a major winter storm, another one is bearing down across the middle of the country. It's the biggest snowstorm of the year in Denver.

Hundreds of flights were canceled and delays were more than four hours in Denver last night. HLN affiliate KUSA reports blinding conditions caused several cars to spinout and crash. Luckily, there no reports of anyone being hurt.

Now the storm is on the move. HLN meteorologist Bob Van Dillen says there are blizzard warnings from New Mexico into the Texas panhandle, Oklahoma and Kansas. He forecasts snowfall totals of one to one-and-a-half feet with winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour. 

Further south, Van Dillen says, "It’s all heavy rain on the Gulf Coast, with lots of lightning." A severe thunderstorm watch was in place early Monday for a stretch from New Orleans to Pensacola. 

Looking ahead, that heavy rain will move north towrard the Carolinas, with flooding concerns exapanding with it.
