Two powerful storms are moving across the United States, threatening a significant portion of the population with heavy snowfall and severe weather conditions.

Half of the country, from California to Kansas to New York to New England, is facing winter weather watches and advisories for heavy snow.

One of the storms is moving from the Southern Plains to the Northeast and is expected to bring a large amount of snow and ice to Kansas through the Mid-Atlantic until Wednesday. The National Weather Service issued a weather alert for risk of severe thunderstorms and flash flooding from the Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas tri-state area through the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys.

The other storm is moving from Northern California into the southwestern part of the country. It is expected bring heavy winds and at least a foot of snow at unusually low elevations.  The front will continue through Southern California, bringing snow to areas that usually see moderate temperatures and sunny skies throughout the year.

Heavy snowfall was reported in Kansas on Monday morning, and the storm is expected to continue to move across the Plains states before turning northeast on Tuesday.

The storm will later bring wintry weather to parts of Pennsylvania, New York, and parts of New England.
