Cleveland to escape big storm expected to cripple much of United States

Potential Winter Storm For SE Wyoming Wednesday

Potential Winter Storm For SE Wyoming Wednesday

The western and southwestern parts of the state are looking at up to 18 inches of snow possible, with 4-6 or more inches of slushy snow anticipated in the metro. The low is predicted at 25 degrees.

"We've got very lucky in terms of we got hardly any rain during the major part of the snow melt", said National Weather Service hydrologist Craig Schmidt. Forecasters have issued another bomb cyclone warning as part of this new storm system.

The Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch across southern Minnesota as a potentially historic weather system could bring 4 to 9 inches of snow and 55 miles per hour winds to the area by Thursday night. Wind gusts of up to 50 m.p.h. are also expected.

A winter storm watch is now in place for Wednesday evening through Friday afternoon. Strong winds and heavy snow with blizzard conditions will develop Wednesday afternoon for the northeast plains. Drier, warmer air could move into parts of northern Wisconsin as the storm winds down, slightly eating into snow totals as the precipitation becomes mixed or changes over to rain.

The forecast also warns that the storm could possibly last until Thursday. Highs should reach the mid 50s (13 degrees Celsius), and it'll be a breezy day.

The good news with this storm is that it will be so far north that it will not bring a lot of rain to the Midwest.

Travel will be very hard across eastern Colorado Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. It seems appropriate for a storm that strong to have bomb in its name, but the word actually refers to a meteorological phenomenon and not the cyclone's explosive intensity.

Whatever happens, the best news is April snow doesn't last for long and spring will get back on track before we know it! Once the temperature warms up, the Midwest may be in for heavy flooding.

Snow began to fly about 8:30 a.m. over Greater Bangor, where forecasters now expect as much as 7 inches of fresh powder to make up for the melting in recent days, according to the weather service office in Caribou.

Although it's springtime, winter weather isn't entirely unusual in April.
