A MAJOR snowstorm is expected to hit central America this week, bringing up to three feet of snow with blizzard-like conditions causing travel chaos for millions.
Frigid temperatures from Canada are forecast to slam through portions of Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota.
The latest forecast suggests the storm may result in a five-day stretch, resulting in severe weather conditions, including heavy rain, flooding, damaging winds, thunderstorms, and heavy snowfall.
The late-season snowstorm may bring up to a foot or more of snow in a few areas, with possible blizzard conditions.
The storm is expected to emerge from the Rockies and maneuver across the Plains by Tuesday, dumping snow across Wyoming and the Colorado Rockies.
Nebraska, North and South Dakota, and Minnesota are forecast to be hit by Tuesday night.

Up to two feet of snow is likely across North Dakota and northern Minnesota.
The storm will then move across Idaho and Utah by Wednesday, sprinkling a few inches of snow.
"A swath of heavy snow is expected to linger and be slow moving, allowing for perhaps 2-3 feet of snow to pile up in some locations before the snow ends," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
The Wasatch Range in Utah and the Bitterroot and Rocky Mountains of Idaho and Montana are expected to see the worst end of the storm as heavy snowfall will batter the region.

"Blizzard conditions are likely to unfold as the storm gains strength, snow piles up and winds increase," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Brandon Buckingham.
The severe weather may disrupt flights and bring icy road conditions.
Experts are warning motorists who typically travel along Interstates 25, 80, 90, and 94 should plan for delays and difficult travel conditions as the storm passes midweek.
