Powerful Storm System pummels the US as the long harsh winter of 2019 has tightened its grip after record snowfall and record cold

The long harsh winter of 2019 has tightened its grip on the US this week after record snowfall and record cold any thought of Spring on the back burner 
NOAA’s GOES West satellite captured this GeoColor limb view of the powerful winter storm system that’s expected to intensify before sweeping eastward across much of the Central U.S. 
Blizzard warnings are already in effect from northeastern Colorado into southeastern Wyoming and across western Nebraska and southwestern South Dakota, according to the National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center (WPC). Heavy rains, severe thunderstorms, isolated flooding, heavy snow and blizzard conditions associated with this storm could lead to “extremely dangerous” travel conditions. In the areas mentioned above, the WPC warns that visibility will drop to near zero during the height of the storm.
“You risk becoming stranded if you attempt to travel through these conditions,” the WPC tweeted.
As of 11:16 a.m. 1,417 flights within, into or out of the United States were cancelled, according to FlightAware.com. Denver International Airport and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport were among the airports most affected by the impending storm with more than 1,000 and nearly 140 cancellations respectively. 
Parts of the southern and central High Plains, which are on the southern side of this storm, are expected to experience very high winds with sustained speeds of up to 30-40 mph and gusts of over 60 mph. 
The major winter storm is hitting the Central U.S. from the Rockies across all of the Plains into the Upper Mississippi Valley this week, delivering blizzard conditions, severe thunderstorms and isolated flooding.  
NOAA meteorologists say the weather system rapidly intensified and has reached a scientific classification called bombogenesis. This phenomenon is a rare one for the landlocked region and has the potential to break all-time, low-pressure records for parts of Colorado and Kansas. Millions of people are under warnings for winter storm, blizzard and high wind.

  1. Another new storm system name, bombogenesis! These are always central U.S. to the east coast, half of the country....always the exact same area for all these named polar cold front storm systems. Anyone noticing these facts yet!!??? Geoengineering is the cause. Geo-storms. Man made but AI like that one day could just take on a life of their own enabling man to be unable to control the monsters he creates. You can't fool mother nature like you can fool people! She gets pissed!

    1. Yes, I have noticed, for the last three and a half years to be exact, always central U.S. to the east coast, half of the country. They seem to come after periods of drought too.
