About 60 million Americans are in line to receive a bout of severe weather as a storm system moves across over a dozen states. Here are the details of this severe weather maker.

Severe Weather Threat Fires Up Across Central U.S. and Beyond

The severe weather event first got its start in the Rocky Mountain region, dumping several inches of snow across Denver and beyond. The flakes began to fly on Wednesday and are expected to linger through Friday.

The energy and moisture associated with this system will then push into the Plains states, ushering in the risk of heavy rain, thunder and lightning, hail, strong winds, and isolated tornadoes.

Forecasters are predicting that the storm will come in two waves as it journeys from the Plains and into the Midwest and eventually the southeastern corner of the country.

The initial disturbance brought severe weather to parts of eastern Kansas, southeastern Nebraskas, the western half of Missouri, and up into southeastern Iowa on Wednesday. The storms were fueled by the warmer temperatures in the afternoon, and hung on through the evening and overnight hours.
