A Bomb Cyclone Blizzard Denver Colorado 2019:
Heavy rains and snow fall causes blizzard conditions and winter storm will also affect areas of the country from the Central Rockies across the Plains, and from the Mississippi Valley into the Upper Great Lakes, including Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota.
The National Weather Service said, “These conditions will spread eastward across the plains this afternoon,Travelers across the Colorado mountains and eastern plains should consider canceling travel plans today, as conditions will deteriorate quickly during the late morning or early afternoon.”
Meteorologist Ryan Maue noted on Twitter, “The “bomb cyclone” blizzard will have a massive wind field. Gusts over 50-mph from the Dakotas to Texas. In eastern Colorado 60-80 mph+ gusts Texas panhandle and eastern New Mexico 65-75 mph+ While not a tropical system, winds will rival what’s seen in a Category 1 hurricane.”
The airport Denver said, “We’re preparing for several inches of snow and strong winds at DEN tomorrow. Ahead of the storm, @southwest, @frontier and @united have cancelled flights and more cancellations and delays are possible. If you’re flying tomorrow, check with your airline #cowx”
With talk of a record breaking low forming in the Great Plains this week, I thought I’d make a animation illustrating the evolution.
In short: Two +PV anomalies phase in the Rockies, initiating sfc cyclogenesis in the lee. Min pressure in low 970’s may rival records in the area. pic.twitter.com/gWbYqvYO96
