SNOWY SCENES like this one in northern Arizona greeted residents throughout the Midwest last weekend.
Storm dumps snow on Arizon

By The Associated Press
A storm approaching blizzard
ferocity assaulted the Midwest yester-
day as some Arizona cities struggled
out from under 15 inches of snow and
thunderstorms pounded North Texas
with hail and 50mph winds.
Dense fog that descended on much of
Texas was blamed for, the crash of a
light plane in Dallas that killed two
people late Sunday. I
The fog also caused several chain-
reaction traffic accidents on a Dallas
expressway Monday morning.
NEBRASKA'S first major snowstorm
of the season brought warnings from
the National Weather Service of "near-
blizzard conditions" in the central and
eastern parts of the state. The snow was
coming down at the rate of an inch an
hour in Valentine, Neb.

Curt Holderbach of the weather ser-
vice in Nebraska warned of blowing,
drifting snow and said, "The only
question right now is the path of the
thing."
"Somebody's going to get heavy snow
out of it, and it could be eastern
Nebraska," he said.
A COUPLE of inches of snow also
covered much of northwest Kansas,
with rain and freezing rain in Min-
nesota expected to change to snow in
"significant amounts" in some regions.
The forecast for today called for snow
continuing in the central Plains and up-

per half of the Mississippi Val
rain from the Ohio Valley to
Coast states.
Rain showers will be scatter
Pacific Northwest, with sunny
the Rockies, the Southwest an
the Eastern Seaboard.
Temperatures will range in
and 30s in the north-centrals
the 50s in the Pacific Northwe
the 60s and 70s in the South.
Temperatures around the na
p.m. EST ranged from a low
Bismarck, N.D., to a high
