Wintery Weather Causing Holiday Headaches

Ad Feedback

Holiday travelers are facing a multitude of weather challenges Thursday, with officials posting winter warnings or advisories in seven states from Montana to New Mexico.

A power cold front is already dumping snow in Denver Thursday morning, which could bring up to 20 inches of snow and that will mean delays at this major travel hub.

Gusty winds and blowing snow from Montana to Colorado are making driving tough and Christmas shopping a challenge.

This latest winter storm follows a deadly blizzard that swept the southern plains earlier this week.

Amazing survival stories are now surfacing.

In New Mexico, rescuers pulled a family of three -- buried under four feet of ice and snow -- to safety.

In the same state, a woman gave birth in a truck while family members braved the storm, driving her to the hospital.

Meanwhile, a soggy mess is sweeping through from the Gulf Coast to the East Coast.

In the next few days, heavy rains from New Orleans to Atlanta may trigger airport delays for holiday travelers. 

"We have some extra baggage, brought our family with us today, so we're hoping no delays and everything goes smoothly," one traveler said.

Perhaps the best place to be right now is on the West Coast, where sunny skies and dry conditions are expected through Christmas.
