Last week, a rare November snowfall blanketed parts of Tennessee and Arkansas.
This week, a major winter storm hammered parts of New Mexico and northern Texas.
Snow blanketed many desert communities on Monday, while strong winds led to poor visibility on the roadways. A major highway, Interstate 40, had to be closed in some places. The University of New Mexico was closed for the day on Monday.
The heaviest snow fell in northern Texas, with up to two inches coating lawns and driveways.
A separate system is pushing east, also bringing snow to parts of Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas.
