  • What Is a Bomb Cyclone: All About the Winter Weather Storm Hitting This Week

"Bombogenesis is defined as a 24 mb drop in atmospheric pressure in 24 hours". He told the publication that it could become the worst storm of its kind in the past 40 years, with category 1 hurricane level winds added to intensifying snowfall and ice. Other hazards include heavy snow and severe storms with possible tornadoes and flooding. "Travel will be treacherous in locations, and the combo of snow and wind will likely lead to power outages", the NWS warned.

Watches, warnings and advisories for the storm cover about 1.5 million square miles, which is roughly half of the area of the continental United States - and they stretch from the Mexican border to the Canadian border.

FARGO - The National Weather Service didn't mince words Tuesday afternoon, March 12, when it released an updated picture of an expected historic blizzard that could have "crippling" impacts on the region from Wednesday evening through Friday morning.

The Lower Mississippi Valley and southern Plains will experience thunderstorms with heavy rain and flooding. The southern part of the state as well as the Western Slope are now under winter storm warnings, as meteorologists predict that the storm will result in risky conditions. It was caused by a combination of the jet stream and normal conditions in the wind shadow of the Rockies.

According to WPC, visibility will drop to near zero and "travel will become extremely risky". CBS Denver reported more than 1,300 flights have been canceled there because of weather conditions. The majority of those cancellations were flights destined for or originating at Denver International Airport (DIA), where a blizzard warning is in effect.

Brexit talks deadlocked day before Commons vote on May's deal
"The prime minister has been stubbornly declaring that the only choice is between her deal and no deal ", Corbyn said . But what a mess. "Allowing a free vote on no deal shows Theresa May has given up any pretence of leading the country".

Rivers in Wisconsin are expected to reach flood stage over the next few days as thunderstorms and showers melt away snow that has accumulated this winter.

School districts across the region, including Denver Public Schools, are closed on Wednesday, citing "severe winter weather and road conditions".

On Wednesday, South Dakota's governor also ordered the closure of state government offices in 39 central and western counties due to winter conditions.

In Nebraska, officials late Wednesday morning closed a roughly 130-mile strech of westbound Interstate 80, from Ogallala to the state line with Wyoming, because of the blizzard. The major storm will continue to strengthen Wednesday in the Central Rockies, pushing east to the Central Plains.

The system may bring blizzard-force winds of 50 to 60 miles per hour - or possibly higher - which are expected to blast across much of North Dakota and west-central Minnesota all day Thursday and into Friday morning.
