I 40 from Vegas to Nashville in late January?

Hello - we will be travelling form Las Vegas to Nashville in late January and are considering I 40 since it is a pretty direct route. I know we'll have to watch the weather in the higher elevations of AZ and New Mexico, are there any other places where we could hit snow? Any alternate routes we should consider? We have a 44 ft rig and tow a Honda CRV. Many thanks and Merry Christmas to all

Odds are against real travel problems but.....

In that part of Texas and Oklahoma you can definitely get snow and or ice in late Jan. The good news is you would know long before you are actually on the road.

I-40 at Flagstaff can be dicey if it's snowing. Elevation is about 7000 feet. I've had to stop there to await the highway being cleared and opened for travel. That can be said of almost any location - weather dependency is hard to predict. I-40 is the easiest and most direct route. Safe travels!

While travelling through Arkansas you might have a chance of some ice and snow during that time but I would still say that would be your best route, They keep those interstates opened most of the time. The only slow down will be just before you hit Memphis. There is some road construction and lane closures but the rest should be good travel, Just make sure you check road conditions and have plenty of fuel JUST IN CASE you get stranded. If conditions are good make sure you have fueled up around Little Rock just in case the road construction delays you. All in all you should be ok through Oklahoma and Arkansas if you pay attention to the weather.

Flagstaff, AZ; East of Albuquerque, NM going through the mountains; Clines Corner, NM; Amarillo, TX all can be closed due to road conditions (I.e. snow packed roads). Just keep an eye on the weather. Chances are that you won't have any road closures, but it could happen.

Be sure and stop and get some GREAT New Mexican food before you get east of Albuquerque. After there, the food is not quite the same.

As a thought - if weather is bad near Flagstaff you can take 93 (about 20 miles east of Kingman) down to I-10. You can then pick I-20 in Texas back up to I-40.
