DODGE CITY, Kan. -- A second major winter storm is bearing down on the central Plains, forcing cancellations and sending public works crews scrambling.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard watch from Sunday evening through late Monday for much of Kansas because of the storm system that's tracking across western Texas into Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. The storm could leave up to 15 inches of snow in some sections of Texas and Kansas, where a storm last week dumped about a foot.

More than a foot of snow is possible from the Texas Panhandle, across the Oklahoma Panhandle and into Kansas and possibly Missouri as the storm moves eastward from the southwestern United States.

Weather officials say the storm also could spawn tornadoes Tuesday in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, the Florida Panhandle and Georgia.
