A strong winter storm will spread across much of Colorado and parts of the central United States, leading to strong Cyclone winds and heavy snow all over the region, weather forecasters said as Bomb Cyclone 2019.
The weather, which is expected to be classified as a “Bomb Cyclone”, is expected to hit parts of Colorado and intensify rapidly throughout the day, the National Weather Service said.
Heavy snow, snowy conditions and strong winds will also hit areas of the country from the central plains across the plains and from the Mississippi Valley to the top of the Great Lakes, including Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota.
When the pressure drops, the storms condense and rotate counterclockwise (such as forming a Bomb Cyclone). In this case, the pressure is due, in part, to the strong temperature differences between the warm sub-tropical air mass and the cold Arctic mass in the north of Bomb Cyclone 2019.

“When you have this extreme temperature gradient, you can get that energy – weather disturbance – coming through the atmosphere,” explained Eddie’s meteorologist Kirby.
What is a Bomb Cyclone?
“This can happen when a block of cold air collides with a block of warm air, like air above warm ocean waters,” explains the National Ocean Service on its website. “The formation of this powerful weather system is a process called bomb detonation, which creates what is known as a hurricane bomb.” The same type of booster can happen to a storm spread on the ground, such as the system on Wednesday.
Blizzard warnings extend from the Denver area to the north via Nebraska, Wyoming in Dakotas and northern Minnesota. There is also the risk of sudden flooding across the upper Midwest as Bomb Cyclone 2019.
In addition to the heavy snow, the intense storm will bring in winds of stormy hurricanes and strong winds of up to 75 miles along the southern side of the storm.
