More than 150,000 customers are without power across Texas and Louisiana as a powerful snowstorm moves through the southern states early Monday morning.

(CNN)More than 150,000 customers are without power across Texas and Louisiana as a powerful snowstorm moves through the southern states early Monday morning.

Areas of east and northeast Texas, including Lamesa which received 9 inches of snowfall, have already seen poor visibility due to fog, according to tweets from NWS Midland.

The snow is expected to move out of Texas into southern Arkansas, through north and central Louisiana, and parts of Mississippi and Alabama through Monday, according to CNN Meteorologist Gene Norman.

Snowfall reports show some areas in Texas got up to 9 inches, including Moshein near Waco in the central part of the state, and Lamesa and Denver City in the west Texas.

Waco received 4. 4 inches -- the most snow it's seen since 1982 -- according to a tweet from NWS Fort Worth.

That's the tenth highest 24-hour snowfall event on record for the area, beating the daily record of 1. 1 inches that was set in 1973, the tweet said.

NWS Austin/San Antonio said on Twitter that the area saw up to six inches of snow Sunday.

Jackson, Mississippi, could see about four years' worth of snow accumulation come Monday morning, CNN Meteorologist Pedram Javaheri said.

The average snowfall for the area is only 1 inch a year and 3 to 4 inches are forecast to fall in this storm, according to Javaheri.

There have only been 11 occasions when accumulations have exceeded 4 inches of snow in a season in 126 years of record keeping, Javaheri added, meaning a weather event like this occurs once every 12 years on average.
