This storm appears to be serious enough for one infamous man to make the trip to Colorado for the storm. That man's name is Jim Cantore. If you have ever watched hurricane coverage, you about Jim Cantore.

He's been dubbed over the years as a "hurricane magnet" and I have also heard him be called the "harbinger of bad weather" while I was living in Florida. He seems to have this knack to be right where the bad weather is when it comes to hurricanes. Will he have the same effect on snow in Colorado?

Now I am sure that a snowstorm isn't as intense as a Category 4 hurricane, but if Jim is here, I would have to say there is something going on with winter storm Xylia. This is shaping up to be quite an interesting ride for a snowstorm. We'll all have to wait it out to see how much snow we actually get.
