Unseasonably early snow storms bury Wyoming and South Dakota

October 4, 2013MIDWEST It may only be October, but a severe snowstorm has already buffeted Wyoming and South Dakota and threatens the rest of the Midwest Friday. This unseasonably early snow is strong with almost three feet of snow falling in South Dakota, and residents preparing for even more. Winter Storm Atlas is also expected to bring heavy snowfall, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes to parts of the Rockies, the Plains and Midwest. “I’ve lived in Wyoming my whole life and I’ve never seen it like this, this early. I know several of the businesses nearby are completely closed because they can’t even get workers into work — it’s pretty nasty,” Patricia Whitman, a truck stop shift manager, said to the Associated Press. Winter Storm Atlas could be the earliest snowfall on record in towns throughout the Midwest, and it’s already made its impact felt. The snow has crushed tree lines and destroyed power lines, causing many residents in Wyoming and South Dakota to lose power. Accuweather.com reports that the storm has caused 470 flight delays at Denver International Airport. Numerous roads have been closed, including sections of the I-90 and I-25. It also spawned a tornado in Nebraska, although no one was injured when it touched down. The storm is expected to dissipate over the weekend, with highs in Denver to reach the 70s by early next week. –PBS

    Not only do we have this winter storm going on, a tropical storm is heading towards somewhere on the Gulf Coast, a tornado outbreak in the midwest, and a red flag warning in California as the Santa Ana winds are blowing. As for the NWS (National Weather Service), they’re working without pay due to the government shut-down. Fun time. 😦
