This is a giant storm that will cause all kinds of trouble.
Pink areas are winter storm warnings. Purple represents winter weather advisories which is a lesser condition than a warning. The grayish green color in Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan are winter storm watches. Gray is dense fog advisories.
To the south, the gold (on the uppermost map above) is a high wind warning. Blowing dust may limit visibility on I-40 and I-25. The magenta color in Texas and Oklahoma is an area of extreme wildfire danger. Light browns are areas of high wind advisories. The yellow is the tornado watch (see below).
