CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


A powerful snowstorm lumbered into the Great Plains on Monday, turning roads to ice, cutting visibility and jeopardizing thousands of motorists’ travel plans. It was blamed for two deaths in Colorado.

Monday’s blizzard in The Plains was blamed for at least two deaths in a crash in Colorado. A guard and an inmate were killed when a prison van lost control on an icy highway five miles east of Limon, Colorado. Eight inmates and a prison employee were hospitalized with moderate to serious injuries.


Snow was falling at a rate of about 1.5 inches per hour. The heavy snow hit New Mexico, Kansas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado.

So far the storm is missing Chicagoland to the south. No accumulation is expected with today’s forecast high of 40°F.
