Helena, Mont. (AP) -- A massive storm is expected to bring record snow and cold unusually early to parts of the Rocky Mountains, where residents were warned to brace for widespread power outages, crop damage and treacherous roadways, meteorologists said Friday.

The storm moving into the region on Friday was expected to last three days, bringing strong winds and rain that will turn into snow over the weekend.
