ANOTHER ‘BOMB CYCLONE’

A storm system known as a ‘bomb cyclone’ – defined as a weather phenomenon that entails a rapid drop in air pressure and a storm strengthening explosively (huh???) – whipped the Rockies and Plains for the second time in four weeks, making travel miserable from Colorado to Minnesota and beyond. Heavy snow, strong winds, sleet, freezing rain = mess, and this mess is expected to continue, w/severe weather shifting this weekend to southern states including Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, according to the weather service’s Storm Prediction Center.
