Unlike the weekly after the autumn equinox against summer in the US, the northwestern part of the country is hit by an early snowstorm.
Parts of Montana were hit by snow more than 90 centimeters thick.
Snow covers parts of California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Nevada and Utah Sunday (9/29).
The National Weather Service called the storm "historic," adding "estimates of the maximum temperature possible on Monday (30/9), mostly in the Northern Great Basin, the Rocky Mountains and Northern California."
Montana Governor Steve Bullock declared a state of emergency on Sunday (9/29), allowing the state to channel more resources to help the region that was most facilitated by it.
"Montana residents must pay attention to the talks of state and local officials, travel safely, and be more vigilant," Bullock said in response.
"Wet snow is very thick and strong winds will cause fallen trees, power outages, and dangerous road conditions," said opposing the weather service.
The service also allows Montana residents to save pets and livestock more carefully.
The storm is expected to fall on Monday (30/9).
