Large hail, damaging winds and destructive tornadoes will be possible for a wide swath of the country.
Please monitor the latest watches and warnings in your area.
Heavy rain could cause flash flooding.
Dry and windy weather will fuel the risk of fires across the southern Plains.
A major winter storm is also bringing heavy snow and blizzard conditions from the Northwest to the northern Plains and upper Midwest.
The country is split in terms of temperatures.
Much colder air has settled in across the West behind the big storms in the middle of the country while warmer than average highs are in place ahead of the storms across the East.
