Meteorologists Warn ‘Bomb Cyclone’ Ready to Bring March Snow From Colorado to Quebec - Sputnik International

‘Bomb Cyclone’ Ready to Bring March Snow From Colorado to Quebec

Spring may be only two weeks away, but Mother Nature has her own plans, and a significant swath of the United States and Canada is likely to get snow beginning on Thursday.

According to AccuWeather, frigid Arctic air is about to collide with warm air from the Gulf of Mexico over the Great Plains. The Jet Stream will continue to ram cold air into this situation and push the storm to the northeast, bringing snow and thunderstorms as far as Canada’s Maritime Provinces by the beginning of next week.

The convergence of forces is expected to create a situation called “explosive cyclogenesis,” in which the atmospheric engine that drives storm creation would go into overdrive, rapidly strengthening into a cyclone with powerful winds and heavy precipitation in just a matter of hours. The storm this dynamic produces is called a “bomb cyclone.”

The National Weather Service has issued Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories stretching from Denver, Colorado, to Kansas City, Missouri, for Thursday, where as many as six inches of snow could fall.
