Big storms can roll in very quickly. It can be scary to get caught in a storm like this one. It helps to know what weather to expect. Weather forecasts help people stay prepared.

Some weather maps show the movement of storms. This map shows the United States. The different colors on the map show which areas are affected by the storm. Darker colors show worse weather. In this map, the light green areas are seeing only a little bit of the storm. The dark red or pink areas are being hit hard by the storm.
