I plan to drive home to Las Vegas, NV in March 2016 along I-40W.. I made the mistake of taking this road in December once and I paid the price of getting stuck on an iced out road for hours in Texas. I'm planning to leave later sometime in March, April at the latest. Can someone tell me how roads are around this time of year on I-40?

The NM portion only gets snow in Dec, Jan and occasionally in February. Also, the coldest part of the travel will be in Flagstaff due to high elevation of 7000 ft. I have driven that route before in March, going from Albuquerque to the Grand Canyon. You will be fine. From what I know, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Tennessee are snow free at this time of year baring a fluke snowstorm.

Yes, I echo those who mention northern AZ in and around Flagstaff. I've take I-40 to LA many times, and that can be one icy, windy, challenging drive in the winter. Occasionally spring and fall too.

So driving from Virginia to Las Vegas in early March should be ok, but a chance of bad weather around Flagstaff, AZ?

And depending on how bad your luck is, Edgewood, NM. AFAIK these are the only two points where it goes up that high.
