Did you have to dig out the winter coats? - We did, we just had to go for our walk tonight, we dug them all.
你一定要把冬季棉衣翻出来吗？ - 是的，我们只是今晚要出来散步，我们把它们都找出来了。
And tonight leaving 86 million Americans across 25 States under freeze alerts. - I've never seen anything like this is super early.
今晚，25个州的8600万美国人处于冰冻警报中。 - 我从来没见过这么早的。
In particular parts of Northern Michigan and Wisconsin slammed with more than a foot of snow, Whitecaps crashing on the Great Lakes.
The storm knocking out power for thousands, and closing schools, its paralyzing impact stretching into Illinois and Indiana where roads today were impassable.
Snow falling as far south as Kentucky and Tennessee, the system's powerful punch Landing more than two months before the official start of winter.
East of the Rockies temperatures are 10 to 25 degrees below average, even seasoned locals shudder. - And this is it a birthday gift or is it a problem. It's a problem.
落基山脉东部的气温比平均气温低10到25华氏度(约5-11摄氏度)，就连经验丰富的当地人都冻得发抖。 - 这是生日礼物呢？还是个难题呢？这是一道麻烦题。
Countless families forced to crank the heat, just as heating bills are expected to hit a 10-year High, leaving some left to wonder whether this unseasonably severe cold snap is a sign of brutal winter weather to come.
Is any part of this painful given? that we're like mid-october? - It's going to be a long winter, a really long winter starting this early.
And Maggie joining me now I know the timing of this storm made the impact much worse. - Yeah Lester that's right here in the Upper Peninsula where you can see snow is still falling.
然后玛吉加入了我的节目，我知道这场风暴来袭的时机使影响更加严重。 - 是的，莱斯特，就在这里密西根上半岛，你可以看到雪还在下。
Utility crews are reportedly finding a lot of downed trees that hadn't shed their leaves yet, meaning they were likely toppled by snow, because this early in Fall, they're that much heavier, Lester.
Maggie Vespa, thank you, let's get right to Al Roker who is tracking this cold wave, Al, what can we expect for the rest of the week?
玛吉·韦斯帕，谢谢你，让我们直接来采访阿尔·罗克(Albert Lincoln Roker Jr)他正在追踪这次寒潮，阿尔，这周接下来会发生什么？
Lester we've got this storm system over the Great Lakes, it'll be moving out, but probably dump another one to three inches of snow, so that's out of here.
But still here, 86 million of us are going to be under some sort of frost advisories, freeze warning, from the plains all the way to Northeast down to the gulf.
We've got that jet stream dipping way down, records possible in 18 states, from Texas, Kansas, on into Kentucky, in the East Southeast and down to the gulf.
And then tomorrow, temperatures still below average, anywhere from 10 to 15, from Philadelphia, Baton Rouge, St. Louis, those will start to moderate late this week, and then next week, warmer in the East, colder out west.
明天，费城、巴吞鲁日和圣路易斯的气温仍低于平均温度，在10到15华氏度(-12 ~ -9摄氏度)之间，本周晚些时候气温将开始缓和，下周，东部将变暖，西部将变冷。
