the wild weather sweeping across this country. More than 140 million Americans bracing for dangerous weather this weekend. Snow already slamming Denver overnight and the storm also bringing intense rainfall causing flash flooding in the south. Blizzard conditions expected to spread into the midwest today and our weather team tells us that storm is going to intensify and bring a severe weather outbreak for this weekend. Sam champion is in this morning for rob and he is tracking the storm. Good morning, Eva. Good morning, everyone. So let's talk bit. It's all happening now. The damaging winds, flooding rain, the blizzard warnings all on the board. It's another full day of really bad weather. Overnight dangerous weather hitting two-thirds of the country. In flagstaff, Arizona, a massive winter storm dumping record-breaking snow, more than three feet. This is bad. Reporter: A rare sight for residents as heavy snow and whiteout conditions made the roads treacherous. For drivers. Water rescue going on. Reporter: Outside Phoenix, flooding rain prompting rescues like this one. Watch as crews stretch a line to rescue a man and a woman trapped in the rushing water. The two later airlifted to safety. He said don't give up. Just keep going. Keep going. Reporter: In Denver at least 6 inches falling. The dangerous driving conditions leaving vehicles stranded and this storm stranding 500 flights at the Denver international airport. In the deep south it's the rain and storms, up to 10 inches already falling. Some Tennessee neighborhoods already under water. The heavy rain and flooding trapping these two men inside their car, and just outside of Nashville this truck overturning on aor highway. In Mississippi, the flash flooding submerging cars and buildings like this Baptist church near tupelo, flooded. In Kentucky heavy rains causing a massive rockslide bringing down trees and Boulders and smashing cars. All trapped under the debris. Thankfully no one was injured. And here's what's on the menu today. Just take a look at the watches and warnings that cover most of the country. It's unbelievable what we're going to endure over the next 24 hours. We're going to move the front along right now and backtrack and show you the most danger part of the storm. So here comes the system. It finally unblocks this rain in the deep south and then will push the rain into the northeast a little bit by the time we get to the end of the weekend but let's go back to what the worst part of the day is today and follow the front. When you watch this front move east you'll see bright colors almost like jewels along the front with the red and the Orange and the yellow. Those are the storms that develop early this morning and run all day long. It's a dangerous situation that we call long track tornadoes or long track storms, and that's exactly what we're setting up during the day today. Look at the bull's-eye and the bright shades here of the Orange and red from Greenville just a little bit really east of Memphis into central Tennessee is where we think we could see tornadoes develop today. Need you guys to be on notice
