Oklahoma digs out from ice storm
Kansas gets a foot of snow
Wintry Blast Moves East
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma residents were mostly spared a threatened second wintry blast on Saturday, as crews were still working to restore power to homes and businesses blacked out by last weekend's storm.
Neighboring Kansas, however, had up to a foot of snow Saturday morning as the storm took aim across the Midwest into New England.
Hundreds of thousands of people were still in the dark in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri.
The major winter storm today will spread heavy snow from the central Plains to the Northeast, with rain and thunderstorms to the south. Tonight, the system will erupt into a powerful nor'easter that will pummel the Northeast on Sunday.
According to the Midwest Regional News story, heavy snow today will fall across the central Plains into the Midwest and the lower Great Lakes. A wintry mix of precipitation will spread through the Ohio Valley, while drenching rain could renew flooding problems in the Tennessee Valley.
