A huge Pacific storm drenching Southern California will kick off a week of wild weather across the United States as the harsh and unusually cold air moves east. Los Angeles will get gusty rain showers and as much as 12 inches (30 centimeters) of snow could fall across the peaks of the region’s mountains, the National Weather Service said.

There could be minor urban flooding and some mudslides along burn scars as well, said Marc Chenard, a forecaster with the U.S. Weather Prediction Center.

Then the storm will push into the central U.S., raising the risk of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes from Texas to the East Coast through the rest of the week. Swirling winds could lead to fast-spreading wildfires. Red-flag fire warnings are posted across parts of Arizona, Colorado, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming qnd Oklahoma, along with a large swath of Texas.

There is also an elevated risk of fires in North Carolina. 

Chenard said that the severe weather threat starts picking up tomorrow from Texas to Kansas. Then the next day, Wednesday, it picks up across portions of the South. There is a continued severe weather risk in the mid-Atlantic on Thursday.”
