Blizzard warnings were issued in five different states in the in the Central U.S. on Tuesday, as a strong low pressure system continues to move eastward though the nation, according to the National Weather Service.

Travel though the affected region “will be dangerous, if not impossible,” forecasters said as the winter system flares in parts of the West and Midwest.

"Blizzard conditions with wind chill temperatures below zero are expected," the weather agency said.

The ongoing strong snow storms caused fatal road accidents and shut highways in New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas, and killed at least eleven people, according to reports.

Four people were killed in a collision with a pickup truck in New Mexico on Monday, a prison guard and an inmate were killed when a prison van crashed along an icy road in Colorado, and five other people died in a plane crash due to poor visibility caused by weather conditions in Texas.

However "it appears the heaviest snowfall with this system has ended, as the disturbance tracks toward eastern Oklahoma," the National Weather Service said.

Snow across the Rockies was expected to end Tuesday morning, but could move across the central Plains until later in the day, the agency said.
