By Dawn Denmar     Oct 4, 2013 in Environment
An early winter storm is set to hit over the next few days. Snow, strong winds and rain are predicted from Idaho to Nebraska, with heaviest snowfall predicted for the Northern Rockies and over a foot of snow in parts of Montana, Colorado and Wyoming.
An early season winter storm is predicted to hit the Northern Rockies to the Northern Plains over the next few days. The heaviest snowfalls will fall in the higher altitude areas of the Rockies but snowfall up to a foot deep is anticipated for southern Montana, Colorado and Wyoming. The Black Hills of South Dakota are also forecast to receive up to two foot of snow and power outages are expected.
Nick Wiltgen from the Weather Channel said: “It’s a very early winter storm, especially for parts of the Plains States, such as South Dakota, northern Nebraska, and potentially North Dakota.
"There’s a lot of wind driving this snow. Visibility will be poor and there could be near blizzard conditions.”
He warned that travel in the affected regions may prove difficult.
It's possible the storm could trigger severe weather or tornadoes in Iowa, parts of Kansas and eastern Nebraska.
