Denver Weather: Storm Moving East

A 'Bomb Cyclone' Is Thwacking The Central U.S.

A 'Bomb Cyclone' Is Thwacking The Central U.S.

For a storm to be classified as a bomb, the barometric pressure has to drop by at least 24 millibars over a 24-hour period.

"Limited visibility has affected our ability to respond", Xcel Energy spokesman Mark Stutz said, adding it was unclear when power would be restored. No injuries were reported. Blizzard conditions were expected from northeastern Colorado, southeastern Wyoming, western Nebraska and parts of North Dakota and South Dakota, the weather service said.

Authorities blamed high winds for a train derailment in eastern New Mexico where approximately 25 freight cars went off a trestle over a mostly dry river bed. 73% of flights were cancelled at Denver International Airport, where winds peaked at 80 miles per hour. We started with heavy rain this morning, that quickly turned over to heavy snow with gusty winds.

People who live there should expect blizzard conditions, heavy wind gusts and possible tornadoes and flooding. Severe blizzard conditions are expected and several weather warnings are in effect in these areas.

The storm could dump between 12 and 18 inches of snow - and as much as 26 inches in parts of the corridor, according to the weather service.

"Heavy rains.isolated flooding and severe weather will accompany these thunderstorms as they march fairly quickly eastward", the weather service predicts.

Tracking website FlightAware said that hundreds of flights have been canceled.

Travel will be unsafe and nearly impossible in some places. That includes the Denver Public Schools, which cited "severe weather and road conditions". Denver is under a blizzard warning, and snow accumulations of five to eight inches are expected.

The Douglas County School District will once again be closed on Thursday due to weather.

Wyoming had closed state offices in Cheyenne, while South Dakota's governor ordered state offices closed in 39 central and western counties because of the storm.

A 280-mile (451-kilometer) stretch of I-80 was closed from the small city Rock Springs to the Nebraska state line.

The explosive storm system continues impacting travel, power and safety across the region as damaging wind and areas of heavy snowfall continues into Wednesday evening. We could still see gusts reach around 75 miles per hour, especially for eastern Colorado.

The storm is forecast to rapidly intensify overnight Wednesday east of the Colorado Rockies and trek slowly northeast through Thursday, bringing a variety of extreme weather from New Mexico to the Midwest.

"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.

"Flash flooding is possible if ice jams clog rivers and streams, the weather service noted", according to CNN.
