Old Man Winter apparently smells the turkey already.
A large storm already blamed for at least eight deaths in the West is slowly pushing Sunday through Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and other parts of the southwest. The storm is expected to target the South and eastern half of the country in the coming days, boosting the likelihood of snarled roads and airports as travelers head out for Thanksgiving travels.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for chunks of North Texas from noon Sunday until midday Monday. Parts of Oklahoma are also under a winter storm warning, while an advisory has been issued for other parts of the state. Large portions of New Mexico especially in some of the higher elevations have a few inches of snow, and near white out conditions were reported along stretches of Interstate 40 west of Albuquerque.
