'Bomb Cyclone' brings snow, high winds to U.S. Plains states

MidWest NOAA GOES-West

Meanwhile, hundreds of flights were canceled at Denver International Airport, and almost 40 were grounded in Colorado Springs.

High winds knocked 25 railroad freight cars off a bridge into a mostly dry riverbed near Logan in northeast New Mexico. Bombogenesis is the process of rapid intensification that a winter storm system can go through.

A record-breaking snowstorm pummeled Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota with high winds and heavy snow on March 13.

About 1,000 flights into Denver have been canceled as a winter storm hits the western US, with blizzard conditions expected to engulf parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska and South Dakota.

The NWS said Wednesday afternoon there was an 80 miles per hour peak wind gust recorded at the Denver International Airport.

The National Weather Service warned residents of Boulder, Colo. against traveling on Wednesday afternoon and evening, citing the possibility of icy roads, whiteout conditions, and strong winds, according to CNN.

However cross-continental air travel lanes could be disrupted as well as the system brings a line of rain squalls eastward, forecasters said.

Bomb cyclones occur when a quickly forming storm results in a drop in atmospheric pressure of at least 24 millibars. We started with heavy rain this morning, that quickly turned over to heavy snow with gusty winds. United Airlines also cancelled 133 flights.

BTS Announce Their Next Album And The Clues Were There All Along
After the success of the Love Yourself series, everyone is excited to see how BTS will explore its latest concept. Though more details of the upcoming album are awaited, pre-orders for the record will begin from March 13.

The massive storm is expected to wallop areas including the Rockies, Central/Northern Plains to the Upper Midwest with blizzard conditions and winds that could blow from 50 to 70 miles per hour. Severe storms capable of producing damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes is forecast from the southern Plains and into the Mississippi River Valley.

Travel will be unsafe and nearly impossible in some places.

Multiple Colorado school districts were closed.

Earlier Wednesday, Gov. Kristi Noem has closed state government offices in 39 central and western counties because of blizzard conditions.

"Snow and gusty winds from Ulmer continue from the Colorado Rockies to western South Dakota and much of Wyoming". However, the wind too will begin to subside through Thursday morning.

Sustained wind speeds of 30 mph to 40 mph with gusts of more than 60 mph are expected over most of New Mexico, western Texas, central and western Oklahoma.

"A strong cold front associated with this second system will bring snow levels down to mountain bases and some valley floors by Wednesday afternoon", the NWS predicts.

Because snowfall totals of a foot or more are possible in the region, the weather service said the danger of roof collapses will be high, particularly for weaker structures, given the amount of snow already on roofs.
