Rockies, Upper Midwest hammered by snow and cold

Powerful storm could send temperatures as much as 40 degrees below average and bury several states in snow.

The cold is expected to eventually blanket the central U.S. from the Rockies to the Great Lakes region.

Winter is still a month away

By Monday afternoon, parts of Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin had been buried beneath 8, 12, 14, even 16 inches of snow.

Up to 2 feet of snow is expected in parts of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula by the time the storm ends.

Some farmers in Minnesota and South Dakota were worried that the deep snow would delay harvesting of their corn crops.

  1. Caught by the snow just like the Russians have been this year as well, this is what happens when US AGW propagandist believe their own lies. This is climate change, it’s been happening for 3.5 billion years. It isn’t driven by fossil fuel burning, it’s driven by the sun, get over it.
    The Sun has just finished a very long Warm period, similar to the Roman and Medieval warm periods. A significant cold period immediately follows. We have around 30 more years of this kind of weather, and its only just got started, expect to see another eight weeks cut from the growing season over the next 6 years. Start planting crops which can cope with cold weather. Quit growing fuel crops, that usable ground will be required to grow food for humans and their farm animals.

  2. And just before 3 a.m. Thursday, the temperature reached minus 14 degrees, breaking the previous record low of minus-3 set on Nov. 13, 1916.

    The National Weather Service says Thursday’s mark ties for the second-coldest temperature at any point in November in recorded Denver history.
