and windy Chicago tonight. A major cold snap over the weekend. This, from Parrish New York. Fall foliage covered in snow, up to 9 inches of snow in some parts. Dangerous roads across it upstate New York as the cold front moved through. In the southwest, dangerous lightning in Phoenix. Now comes word of a it warm-up. Rob Marciano with the story. Reporter: From the great Lakes to the northeast millions feeling winter's early wrath. An impressive nine inches of snow Tim: Near Syracuse. Reporter: Police working more than 50 accidents on icy roads in Syracuse, an impressive 9 inches of snow falling just north of there. We thought maybe a couple of inches and then it just kept coming and kept coming. Underneath this snow, there's some green grass and some fall leaves. Reporter: Boston enduring the earliest October temps below freezing in nearly 30 years. And in the west, more intense storms there, knocking out power in the Phoenix area. Winds gusting over 60 miles an hour tearing this cotton storage plant to shreds, knocking over this gas station awning and ripping the roof right off this home. It was dynamite going off. It was that loud, the floor shook. Reporter: And in southern California, the last of the mud caked cars trapped in those mudslides, finally cleared from the highway. Back in studio, we start with the west. More storms expected there. Storms in the Phoenix area. By the afternoon the focus shifts towards New Mexico. High intensity rainfall. And potentially flash flooding. And the east, temperatures rebound into the 60s. 70s. Maybe lower 80s by Wednesday. 61 in Syracuse. 74 in D.C. That snow will be long gone by tomorrow and Wednesday.
