Avalanche drivers in Nevada have been told to stay out of their cars for the foreseeable future.
The state has reported the snowfall in some areas of the state, and the National Weather Service (NWS) warned that snow could be heavy across the state on Tuesday.
However, the state has not declared a state of emergency, meaning people will be able to drive on the roads if they have the necessary permits.
The NWS issued a snow advisory in the western part of the country, with more snow expected later in the week.
The National Weather Center has been keeping a close eye on the situation, warning of snowfalls of up to 3 metres (10 feet) in parts of the US west coast, with the strongest storms expected to hit on Wednesday.
The snowfall is the second highest since January 2017.
The NPS said on Wednesday that it is expecting about 15 to 20 inches (51 to 77 centimetres) of snow across the country.
The agency said the heaviest storms will hit in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, where it is forecasting 10 to 20 centimetre (6 to 12 inches) of the snow.
There will be significant snowfall and high winds in the eastern US, as well as the central US and northern Canada, the NPS warned.
In a statement on Thursday, the agency said that its snowfall forecast was “based on a combination of our current snowfall, recent track changes and the amount of snow in the atmosphere”.
The agency warned that severe weather warnings are still in place for the eastern states and for the central and western US.
“Due to the extreme conditions in these regions, the potential for heavy snowfall remains and the threat of flooding remains,” the statement said.
The stormy weather is expected to impact parts of New York and New England in the coming days, with storm surges that could be up to six feet (2 meters) high.
The forecast calls for snowfall of up by as much as 3 metres in parts or all of New England and New York State.
However, in the New York City area, it will only be 2 to 3 centimetrees of snowfall.
Snow is forecast to be heaviest in New Jersey and New Hampshire.
On Thursday, more than a foot of snow was recorded in some parts of Delaware, the National Guard said.
