Snow drifting up to three feet deep closed churches and airports and stalled travel Sunday in Oklahoma, as a storm blamed for 22 deaths rolled across the Plains. Parts of western Texas also had snow and ice, and dozens of stranded travelers spent the night in churches. As the storm moved northeast, freezing rain closed highways in Pennsylvania and New York, and 34 cars piled up in two chain-reaction accidents on an icy stretch of Interstate 87 near Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Heavy snow fell Friday in the Southwest and forecasters posted winter storm warnings for the mountains of Arizona. Record cold chilled New England but cloudy skies helped raise the mercury in the frost-bitten Midwest. Rain moved into Texas but did not ease the state's fire danger, caused by a dry spell. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the Mogollon Rim and the White Mountains in north-central Arizona.

A powerful storm barreled across the southern midsection of the country Monday, bringing blizzard conditions to New Mexico and tornadoes to Texas and Illinois. Winds gusting to 87 m.p.h. knocked out power, uprooted trees and demolished houses. On its way east, the storm dumped as much as 16 inches of snow in the Colorado Rockies. Northeastern New Mexico got only light snow, but it was whipped by strong winds so that visibility was nearly zero.
