Climate change is making winters colder, despite rising temperatures and hotter summers. Here’s why.
Forget fall – portions of central U.S. will feel downright winter-like over the next few days as a potent snowstorm and bitter cold take aim on the region.
The powerful system is expected to produce heavy snow, as much as 12 inches, from the north-central Rockies into the northern Plains, the National Weather Service said. Winter storm warnings and watches are already widespread across the region, all the way from Idaho to Minnesota.
Significant travel impacts, tree damage and sporadic power outages will be possible where the heaviest snow occurs, the weather service in Grand Forks, North Dakota, warned.
Both Denver and Minneapolis could see their first snow of the season.
