The storm will reach the Midwest on Thursday and is expected to dump heavy snow. Schumacher added the bomb cyclone usually develops every couple of years and it was not usual to see them this close together. A bomb cyclone is a weather phenomenon that takes place when the atmospheric pressure falls at 24 millibars in 24 hours or less. The formation of this rapidly strengthening weather system is a process called bombogenesis which creates what is known as a bomb cyclone. The brunt of the powerful storm will be shouldered by the central portion of the US Nebraska and Missouri. Heavy snow and strong winds will produce life threatening travel conditions in parts of the Plains and Upper Midwest. The storm will also drop heavy snow in the northern stretches of the Rocky Mountains including Utah and Idaho today. An intense surface low pressure area moving across the Central Plains Wednesday and Thursday will bring heavy snow and blizzard conditions. The term bomb cyclone is short for bombogenesis and it basically refers to a very rapid deepening of a cyclonic low pressure area. The high is predicted to be around 80 degrees in Denver Colo
