    Is this setence fine ? What do you think of using 'the whole' ?

    Hi, teachers.
    Is this setence fine ? What do you think of using 'the whole' ?

    I am looking forward your opinions.

    Thank you.

    The whole of the region east of the Rocky Mountains will be covered in snow this weekend with a massive storm descending from the north.

    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    I find the whole region or the entire region preferable to the whole of the region.

    All of the region
    also works.
