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

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

In Colorado, more than 133,000 people were affected by power outages, officials said. The weather service office in Midland/Odessa, Texas, said Wednesday could be 'the windiest day in years, USA Today reported. Other hazards include heavy snow and severe storms with possible tornadoes and flooding.

'The calm before the storm, ' Denver International Airport said on Tuesday on Twitter as the airport prepared for the blizzard. For the Dakotas, Nebraska, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado, a blizzard warning was issued by the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued high wind and winter storm advisories from Wednesday to Friday through the central Rockies, across the Plains into the Mississippi Valley and into the upper Great Lakes. The increasingly wide undulations of the jet stream - the wind highway that blows from west to east around the Northern Hemisphere - has allowed for more extreme temperature fluctuations in the continental U.S. And sea surface temperatures, which have been steadily rising, also affect the intensity of storms.

Travel will be risky, if not impossible, at times, across areas where the blizzard warning has been issued.

"On top of the heavy snow, strong winds will lead to blizzard conditions with very low visibility and snow-packed roads", said AccuWeather meteorologist Steve Travis.

"The heavy snow and visibility near zero will create extremely unsafe travel conditions, and power outages are also possible", according to the weather service. CBS Denver reported more than 1,300 flights have been canceled there because of weather conditions.

Multiple Colorado school districts, including the Denver Public Schools are closed Wednesday "due to severe weather and road conditions", the district announced Tuesday. Denver is under a blizzard warning, and snow accumulations of five to eight inches are expected.

Utah: The Beehive State appears to be on the back end of the storm. The major storm will continue to strengthen Wednesday in the Central Rockies, pushing east to the Central Plains.

Sustained wind speeds of 30 mph to 40 mph with gusts of more than 60 mph are expected over most of New Mexico, western Texas, central and western Oklahoma. Snow is expected to taper off by midday Thursday, but strong winds may persist through the evening.

Because snowfall totals of a foot or more are possible in the region, the weather service said the danger of roof collapses will be high, particularly for weaker structures, given the amount of snow already on roofs.
