Many regions across the United States are experiencing snow and other disruptive weather this week.

Much of the nation is dealing with severe winter weather this week.

A slow-moving storm that slammed California last week delivered the first significant snowfall of the season across eastern New Mexico on Feb. 11.

Severe weather was also reported from Texas to western Georgia, including giant hail as large as 3 inches in diameter just outside of Shreveport, LA. Baseball-size hail was also reported in East Texas, according to the National Weather Service.

Tens of millions of people from West Virginia to Maine are expected to see additional wintery weather on Feb. 12, with a nor’easter set to hit the region with heavy snow that could significantly disrupt travel along the Interstate 95 corridor from New York City to Boston.

Meanwhile, a new storm system is set to arrive across the Pacific Northwest by the middle of the week, bringing heavy rain and mountain snowfall.

The Postal Service will continue to deliver where it is safe to do so.
