As a storm exists the western part of the U.S., the states in the Rockies and central states brace to be hit on Monday. Read the full report from The Weather Channel here.
Two to three feet of snow is expected over the mountain ranges as eastern Colorado and New Mexico brace for severe thunderstorms. Hail and strong winds could even be seen in these areas.
The pressure created by the storm could produce Santa Ana winds in California that will make the fire danger even more high. The humidity levels are expected to be very low in the mountain passes, valleys and canyons.
Those in the western states will experience temperatures that are 10-30 degrees lower than average.
Many recovery services will be on call during the week as many states prepare for wet weather, high winds, and potential fires.
