'Historic' winter storm could bring up to 2 feet of snow to central and western US

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/10/09/winter-storm-aubrey-historic-snow-cold-forecast-central-us/3918343002/

A "potentially historic" winter storm will slam the north-central U.S. over the next few days with up to 2 feet of snow possible in some areas.

Accumulating snow will occur from eastern Washington and Montana to Colorado, the Dakotas, Minnesota and northern Wisconsin, the Weather Channel said. Record low temperatures are also possible across the western U.S. on Thursday and Friday.

The storm will also produce severe storms and heavy rain on Thursday in the southern Plains, and critical-to-extreme fire weather threats from the central and southern Rockies to California, the National Weather Service said.

The massive size and intensity of this snowstorm are unheard of for October, according to AccuWeather.

2. Then it will probably warm enough to melt it all really quickly and

the result might be some more of those "fun" floods. Wake up America!
