Strong thunderstorms will again take the stage Sunday as a powerful system continues to rock portions of the U.S. Heavy rain and gusty winds are expected from Detroit to Nashville.

This large system has a severe history going back to Friday where it dropped several feet of snow across Wyoming and South Dakota. Not too far east, it spawned damaging tornadoes that tore down houses and uprooted trees.

The storm evolved into a blizzard on Friday, leading to severe blowing and drifting snow, numerous road closures and a measurement of 48 inches near Deadwood, S.D.

Lengthy stretches of I-90 in western South Dakota and I-25, 80 and 90 in Wyoming were forced to close and some remain closed as of Sunday morning.

The pressure of the storm was 29.58 inches Saturday morning, making it stronger than Tropical Storm Karen and its pressure of 29.77 inches.

On the warm side of the storm, tornadoes touched down in northeastern Nebraska and northwestern Iowa late Friday. The Associated Press reported at least 15 people sustained injuries when a tornado tore through Wayne, Neb.

The windswept snow gradually tapered off Saturday but more storms erupted from Wisconsin to Texas. A couple tornadoes were reported in addition to several strong wind reports.

Tornadoes were reported by both law enforcement and emergency management in Elbridge, Tenn., and near Packwaukee, Wis.

Heavy rain and gusty storms are expected to rumble through the lower Great Lakes to Tennessee Sunday.
