(CNN)Two separate storm systems --one from the Gulf Coast region and the other coming from the Mountain West -- will threaten millions of people with severe weather Sunday and Monday.
More than 15 million people from Lake Charles, Louisiana to Pensacola, Florida, and northward to Memphis could experience damaging winds, hail and a few tornadoes.
"There will be a Slight Risk (level 2 of 5) of severe weather across south Mississippi and southeast Louisiana during the daytime hours on Sunday," the National Weather Service Office in New Orleans explains.
"Damaging winds and large hail are the most significant threats, but a tornado or two cannot be ruled out. "
"Strong to severe thunderstorm development is also possible over the central High Plains, where large hail and severe gusts are the threats," the Storm Prediction Center said.
By Monday, the city will be expecting a high temperature of only 47 degrees -- their normal high for late February.
The exceptionally warm air ahead of the front will be fueling yet another day of severe storms -- this time along the Mississippi River Valley region.
On Monday, over 40 million people from Dallas, Texas, to Columbus, Ohio, will be under the threat for severe storms.
