‘Bomb Cyclone’ Brings Strong Winds, ‘Near-Zero Visibility’ to Parts of US

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

A bomb cyclone pertains to a drop of 24 millibars, a measure of pressure, in 24 hours. The storm in Colorado has dropped 33 millibars since Tuesday morning.

Pressure in the region dipped to almost 970 millibars, the same range as an average Category 2 Atlantic hurricane.

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. "However, in this situation, anticipated storm impacts including heavy snow and sustained wind gusts will take place at the time when school would release".

A blizzard that paralyzed parts of Colorado and Wyoming barreled into the Midwest on Thursday, bringing whiteout conditions to western Nebraska and dumping heavy rain that prompted evacuations in communities farther east.

The National Weather Service warned the storm would create a myriad of weather hazards across the USA through Thursday.

The blizzard began Wednesday morning and was expected to continue through Wednesday night. Severe storms capable of producing damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes are forecast from the southern Plains and into the Mississippi River Valley. NWS has issued high wind watches for more than 8 million people.

Travel: The National Weather Service for Salt Lake City said on Wednesday it might be better to wait until Thursday to start traveling.

While Searcy and his crew say it's just part of the job, those they're helping know it is much more.

The storm's center was over Iowa and Nebraska early Thursday, and while it did its worst damage in the Plains, it will continue delivering unsafe weather conditions to 105 million people who are under some sort of watch, warning or advisory as it moves east.

Shortly after midnight, four of the six runways at Denver International Airport had been cleared, spokeswoman Emily Williams told Reuters. Nebraska has been hit hard by flooding, while the Platte, Elkhorn and Missouri rivers have topped their banks in Missouri. That includes the Denver Public Schools, which cited "severe weather and road conditions".

"All state offices will be closed today", South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem announced, citing forecasters' warnings of intense winds.

Interstate 70 was closed east of Denver to the Kansas state line and sections of Interstate 25 were also shut down, according to Colorado Department of Transportation.

"Stunning view of the water vapor imagery over the Rockies & Plains this afternoon", NWS tweeted on Wednesday.

By late on Thursday, however, the storm is expected to weaken considerably on its route towards northeastern Canada (where it will end up on Friday). "Damaging winds and a few tornadoes will be possible along with large hail", the Weather Service said Thursday.
