Winter storm Cleon, which has already hit parts of the western United States with snow and frigid temperatures, will continue making its way across the country.

Cleon, the third named winter storm of the season, has already dumped nearly 30 inches of snow on parts of Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado. The storm is next expected to bring arctic air to the Southern Plains on Thursday. Forecasters predict a swath of the country from west Texas, across Oklahoma, and into the Ozarks will see temperatures below freezing and a wintery mixture of sleet and freezing rain.

According to The Weather Channel, the storm is then expected to move through the Ohio Valley and into the Southeast, and Pennsylvania and western New York could see snow as well before the weekend.
