Blizzard Warning in Effect for Six States as Rare April Storm Hits

Potential Winter Storm For SE Wyoming Wednesday

The weather service issued a high wind warning for the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles.

"A potentially historic storm will arrive late Wednesday, bringing a variety of precipitation types, strong wind gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour, and very heavy snow totals", the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, tweeted. To the north, wind gusts are expected to be about 50 miles per hour.

Weather watchers are warning that a winter weather storm is expected to dump large amounts of snow on upper midwestern states later this week. Minneapolis hit 70 degrees on Monday; by Thursday, the city will experience full-blown blizzard conditions, including 8 to 12 inches of snow. As the system moves closer on Thursday, a warm front will slide northward through Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

Another 4 million residents of Colorado, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Iowa, Wyoming and Kansas are under blizzard warnings through Wednesday night.

Our moisture-packed Spring storm - now considered a Bomb Cyclone - is spinning across Colorado and mixing it up with cold air flowing into northeastern areas of the state. "Going from 80-degree temperatures one day to a snowstorm the next is not that out of the ordinary, especially in March and April, around here".

The winter storm watch includes Nicollet, Le Sueur, Blue Earth, Waseca, Rice and Steele counties, in addition to others across the region. It's a technical term, and while meteorologists could be understandably a bit exhausted of answering bomb cyclone questions, the storm coming in Wednesday is worth thinking about in advance.

Parts of South Dakota may get up to 30 inches of snow.

Warm temperatures south of the massive blizzard may bring the threat of severe weather to the Midwest.

"A lot depends upon where the heaviest rain comes down, but river flooding and flash flooding are possible", said Scott Dergan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

As this system reaches the East, it will mainly produce rain and thunderstorms, even into northern New England. Reminder that https://t.co/aazl5nwASK is still being updated!

The weather service reported the flood warning continues along the Mississippi River at Aitkin and Fort Ripley.

The worst of this storm is expected to target some of the areas most affected by last month's storm, notably western and northern Nebraska, Bowers said.

The Weather Service cautioned people in Duluth to stay off breakwalls and away from shorelines or risk being swept away or hit by lofted chunks of ice.

"The problem is that we're not getting any time for the water to recede and things to dry out, so the levees can't be fixed; houses can't be fixed; crops can't be planted", he said.

How's the spring weather so far where you live?
