    From the Great Lakes to California record low temperatures and snow blanket the west

    Daily low temperature records are being smashed in the western half of the U.S. as states from Michigan to California experience wintry weather.

    Meteorologist Ryan Maue tweeted Monday that "record low temperatures are covering the map with a major cold front blasting through the Rockies to the Mississippi River."

    Southern Colorado saw its first cold blast of the season, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). Temperatures plummeted Sunday evening and snow began to fall. Freezing weather is expected to rebound somewhat over the next couple days.






    The Boulder area in Colorado also got snow, about 7 inches. Allenspark, just northwest of Boulder, got more than 11 inches of snow, Denver7 News reported.



    However, Americans are experiencing frigid weather as far south as the Rio Grande, Maue tweeted. Parts of the south, including parts of Texas, will still be relatively warm compared to western states.

    North American Snow Cover Is the Most It's Been in Mid-October in 13 Years

    Snow is Covering More of North America Than Usual for October

    Meteorologist Heather Tesch looks at the snow in October. It's covering more of North America than it has at this time in over a decade.



    At a Glance

    • Mid-October snow cover across North America is the largest it's been since 2005.
    • Canada has the largest amount of snow cover.
    • The snowpack could help feed early-season cold weather in parts of the United States.



    Early fall has already brought plenty of winter weather to parts of North America, pushing the continent to its largest snow cover extent for mid-October in more than a decade.
    The area covered by snow in North America as of Sunday was 7.77 million square kilometers (3 million square miles), according to an analysis from NOAA. No other Oct. 14 has had a snow cover extent that large in records dating to 2005.









    Snow cover extent for North America in the 2018-2019 season so far is shown by the red line. The endpoint of that line is Oct. 14 and shows that snow cover extent for this time of year is above all previous years dating to 2005. (NOAA)

    As you would expect, Canada accounts for the largest amount of snow on the ground. In the United States, parts of Alaska, the Rockies and Plains had a blanket of snow.
    The flakes weren't piling up in every northern location where October snow is common, however.
    Fairbanks, Alaska, was still waiting for its first measurable snow of the season as of Oct. 14. That's more than two weeks behind the interior Alaskan city's average date of first accumulating snow which is Sept. 27.






    Shaded is where at least light snow cover was analyzed across the United States and Canada on the morning of Oct. 15.

    Depending how the jet stream sets up deeper into fall, the extensive snowpack in North America could help boost the chances of early season cold weather in parts of the Lower 48. That's because the snowpack can help refrigerate cold air masses and prevent them from becoming milder as they advance southward across North America from the Arctic.
    "Where snow cover tends to advance most aggressively often is a precursor to where the cold air is eventually heading. Certainly, an early buildup of snow cover across Canada can support a pool of cold air that can, with the appropriate jet stream configuration, be discharged south into the United States. So I definitely believe that the rapid advance of snow cover across Canada the past month, if it continues, increases the risk of an early season cold air outbreak into the Lower 48," said Dr. Judah Cohen, director of seasonal forecasting at Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER).
    Parts of the central United States saw record-breaking cold and snow Sunday and Monday.
    On Sunday, Kansas City and Wichita both had their earliest measurable snow in records dating to the late 1800s. Daily record low temperatures were set Monday morning in Denver (18 degrees) and Dallas-Fort Worth (41 degrees).
    Snow covered the ground across 16.7 percent of the Lower 48 states Monday morning, the largest extent for Oct. 15 in NOAA's 15-year database. That said, much of the snow cover in the Midwest and Plains was light and will melt away quickly.

    We don't usually look at this map much until, say, November. While this #snow cover will be gone soon, it's the most expansive for any Oct. 15 in NOHRSC's limited 15-year database. (2009 had 13.7% coverage.)

    While snow cover is above average for mid-October in North America, the same cannot be said for the rest of the Northern Hemisphere.
    Snow cover extent in Eurasia as of Oct. 14 ranks among the lowest for that date since 2005, according to NOAA.
