Washington.— A winter “giant storm system” will affect the central and southern United States in the coming days, while tornadoes are expected in the Southeast, the National Weather Service (NWS) reported Tuesday.

“Extensive widespread snow and ice storms are expected from the north central plains to the Midwest,” the agency said.

“In the warm area of ​​the storm, severe weather with possible damage is possible from the southern Plains and Mississippi Valley all the way to Florida,” the NWS said.

For its part, the Weather Channel, which has named the storm “Diaz”, reported that since the weekend the storm has accumulated up to 150 cm of snow in the Sierra Nevada, with snowfall in southern California, and northern Utah. In .
