Up To Two Feet Of Snow Expected In Parts Of SE Wyoming”

It's called a "Bomb Cyclone" which is a rapid drop in pressure over 24-hours.

"This storm will be responsible for heavy rains, severe thunderstorms, isolated flooding, heavy snows, blizzard conditions and high winds over the next two days across large portions of the Central United States", the National Weather Service said on Wednesday morning. CBS Denver reported more than 1,300 flights have been canceled there because of weather conditions. In other words, the storm is an aberration, which is part of the reason a laundry list of weather watches, warnings and advisories were in place across the state.

Meanwhile, thunderstorms were expected to keep pushing eastward Wednesday from the Southern Plains to the lower to middle Mississippi Valley. Snow will blanket the areas where blizzard conditions are likely, such as parts of Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota.

"The heavy snow and visibility near zero will create extremely risky travel conditions, and power outages are also possible", according to the weather service. "Travel across the region will be hard, if not impossible", because of "white-out conditions and drifting of snow especially across the Plains".

According to Reuters, officials issued alerts to close schools and government buildings across Denver and nearby areas.

'The calm before the storm, ' Denver International Airport said on Tuesday on Twitter as the airport prepared for the blizzard.

Denver itself is expected to get snow accumulations of about 5 to 8 inches on Wednesday.

Major highways and roads across the region have been closed due to the weather conditions, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

In Colorado, zero visibility is expected with wind gusts of up to 80 miles per hour, according to forecasts. Wind gusts of 50mph to 70mph are expected across Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, while some areas could see hurricane-force gusts of 100mph.

The storm is forecast to rapidly intensify overnight east of the Colorado Rockies and trek slowly northeast through Thursday, bringing a variety of extreme weather from New Mexico to the Midwest. Snow is expected to taper off by midday Thursday, but strong winds may persist through the evening.

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