Strong low pressure over Utah has pushed the jet stream deep into the southwestern U.S., allowing unseasonably severe cold and snow to develop over the Rocky Mountains.  Snowfall of up to 4 feet is forecast in the Colorado mountains west of Denver.

The same storm, however, is pumping unseasonably warm weather into the eastern U.S.  The western storm is expected to track northeast through the great lakes and into eastern Canada, dragging a cold front through  the mid Atlantic on Sunday.
