National Weather Service forecast snow storm blizzard

Still, the storm closed schools and government offices in both states and some schools delayed reopening Thursday morning. A bomb cyclone is when cold air meets warm air and brings freezing temperatures, high winds and heavy snow.

State troopers in Minnesota responded to 31 jackknifed tractor trailers, 286 spinouts and 150 crashes by Thursday afternoon, most occurring along Interstate 94, according to Sergeant Jesse Grabow.

The storm beginning on Wednesday has already dumped more than 2 feet of snow on parts of South Dakota and more than about a foot of snow in communities in Wyoming, Montana and Colorado.

"It is a bomb cyclone, the second we've had", said Brian Hurley, a meteorologist with the weather service's Weather Prediction Center in Maryland. Two weeks after the flooding, 10 states - Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin - had groundwater threatened by bacterial and industrial contamination carried by flood waters.

And driving conditions? "The roads are awful", said one South Dakota sheriff's department spokesman.

"Hopefully this time it will be a slow snowmelt", Roth said.

Particularly hard hit by the storm were eastern South Dakota and southwestern Minnesota.

"Really hope this is the last snow storm we'll have to post about this spring, the National Weather Service tweeted".

Snowfall is set to be heaviest in South Dakota. Above, a pair of semi tractor-trailer rigs jackknifed and collided near the Highway 15-68 intersection south of New Ulm.

(ABC News) Snowfall totals will be heaviest throughout South Dakota, northern Nebraska and western Minnesota.

A "bomb cyclone" is a weather phenomenon that entails a rapid drop in air pressure and a storm strengthening explosively. About half of the daily flights at Denver International Airport were canceled.

"This storm is going to be unsafe", Patrol Maj. And thundersnow struck parts of South Dakota, including the capital city of Pierre, according to the report.

In Colorado, Gov. Jared Polis activated the state's national guard to help stranded motorists.

Strong winds associated with the weather system were also creating risky wildfire and travel conditions in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma. "The color is likely due to dust that was blown by high winds all the way from west Texas".

To the south in parts of Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma, the storm will cause high winds, with wind gusts potentially reaching up to 75 miles per hour.

The system also created hazardous wildfire conditions in parts of Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. High winds are making travel even more treacherous.

Forecasters said that the storm will spread snow over the Central and Northern Plains on Wednesday. Last month's flooding swamped 455 houses and thousands of acres of farmland in his region. "Once the storm is done and things start to dry out a bit, we will get back to patching".
