DSC_0596 (1)A bomb cyclone will travel across much of the country starting with snow, rain, and high winds in the West.  As the storm tracks east, it will bring blizzard conditions to the Northern Plains mid week and snow and wind in the Plains and upper Midwest on Friday.

The storm became a bomb cyclone Tuesday thanks to its incredibly fast rate of intensification.

From there, the storm is forecast to continue moving across the country, and reach the Northeast by Sunday with bringing a mixture of heavy rain and snowfall.

Expect hazardous driving conditions in areas impacted by the storm as well as significant flight delays and cancellations across the country.

The National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings for eastern Wyoming, western South Dakota, and northern Nebraska as well as for northeastern Minnesota including Duluth.   The forecast calls for sustained winds of at least 35 mph (56 km/h).  Winter storm warnings and winter storm watches are in effect for the Rockies and the upper Midwest.  Expect additional winter storm warnings and watches in the days ahead as the storm pushes east.

Over 974 flights have been delayed on Friday as of 1 p.m. EST and 2,394 were delayed on Thursday according to Flightstats.com, a service that tracks such information.
