Parts of the US are bracing for a ferocious winter storm with temperatures plummeting below the 20s (F).
Winter Storm Dylan will blanket parts of the Northeast with snow, sleet, and freezing rain.
New England will be hit the hardest. Temperatures in Bangor, Oregon, will fall to lows of 12F, according to The Weather Channel.
One to four inches of snow is already falling in upstate New York and Vermont.
Snow is expected to be a permanent fixture over the weekend until Christmas Day.
Travel in the lead up to December 25 is forecast to be nightmarish.
Dylan has already dumped 40 inches of snow in Montana’s Glacier National Park. Earlier this week, officials said there wasn’t enough snow to ski or snowshoe, but that all changed in the space of 48 hours.
Two inches fell in the space of 90 minutes in Idaho this week.
What The Weather Channel is saying about snow
- More than six inches of snow is likely in much of northern New England and upstate New York by Saturday night.
- Lighter accumulations are expected in other parts of the interior Northeast and eastern Great Lakes as far west as northern Ohio.
- As noted before, initial snow in the Northeast is expected to change over to freezing rain, possibly rain by Saturday in many areas.
- From the Ozarks to the Ohio Valley, Friday night into Saturday, any accumulations of wet snow should be light, generally an inch or less.
