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

The storm could rival one that hit the region in 1979 in terms of the extent of heavy snowfall, according to meteorologist Richard Emanuel with the National Weather Service in Cheyenne, where wind was gusting to 60 miles per hour (96 kph) with heavy snow.

On Wednesday morning, some roads were already flooded in the northeastern part of Nebraska, and the National Weather Service issued a flood warning, saying more rain is expected later in the day.

'We are advising to stay off the roads through the afternoon and evening, ' Treste Huse, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Denver, said on Tuesday afternoon. Morning rain in Denver quickly turned to snow by afternoon with the potential of 10 inches of powder to fall in the state's capital, with even more in the mountains and plains to the east.

"They typically do get strong systems this time of the year in that part of the country, but this one is maybe a notch stronger than what you typically see", said meteorologist Marc Chenard of the weather service told the news outlet.

The Weather Channel has dubbed it "Winter Storm Ulmer", and says it's bringing risky conditions, high winds, and possible structural damage, such as power outages and downed trees.

In the Denver area, blowing snow could cause unsafe blizzard conditions. Southwest, Frontier and United have canceled flights and more cancellations and delays are possible, DIA said.

Snowfall totals through 1:30 p.m. range from 14 inches near Jamestown to 2 to 9 inches across the city and just a small amount across northern Colorado.

Active thunderstorms are predicted for the south and southeast area of the central plains, according to the National Weather Service. It will move through the Upper Mississippi Valley and Upper Great Lakes region on Thursday, NWS said.

It might be looking like spring in some parts of the US but a big blast of winter is bearing down in the central plains in the form of a "bomb cyclone".

It said: 'Heavy snow is likely to spread across the Rockies and into the Plains.

"The heavy snow and visibility near zero will create extremely risky travel conditions, and power outages are also possible", according to the National Weather Service. Several additional states are under a high wind warning, flood warning and winter storm warning, NWS reported.

Taylor entered the USA through Northern California late on March 7, then crossed through Nevada and the central Rockies on March 8.

The avalanche came in between an earlier disturbance and Winter Storm Taylor. "Lots of blowing snow, lots of high winds, drifting snow".
