The storm will sweep right through the Rockies, the Upper Midwest, the central and northern Plains and more of the US heartland.

Blizzard and winter storm warnings are in effect for portions of Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota.

"The heavy snow and visibility near zero will create extremely risky travel conditions, and power outages are also possible", according to the weather service. Because the storm ranges across a wide swath of the USA, the system's impact will differ depending on where it hits.

The term "bomb cyclone" has plenty of dramatic flair, but it's a nickname for the tongue-tying weather term "bombogenesis". According to Flight Aware, there have been more than 1,000 flight delays within the USA and more than 1,400 flights have been canceled.

'The calm before the storm, ' Denver International Airport said on Tuesday on Twitter as the airport prepared for the blizzard.

Denver is under a blizzard warming Wednesday, from 10 a.m to midnight, and forecasters with the National Weather Service are calling for 70 miles per hour winds with up to 12 inches of snow.

The Weather Channel has dubbed it "Winter Storm Ulmer", and says it's bringing risky conditions, high winds, and possible structural damage, such as power outages and downed trees.

Wind gusts of 50 to 70 miles per hour are expected through Thursday morning across Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma, CNN meteorologist Monica Garrett said.

"It's a powerful storm system that when it starts to come together, strengthens very quickly", Accuweather meteorologist Matt Rinde told TIME.

"This storm will be responsible for heavy rains, severe thunderstorms, isolated flooding, heavy snows, blizzard conditions and high winds over the next two days across large portions of the Central United States", the National Weather Service said on Wednesday morning. "It's an impressive event from top to bottom".

Southwest Airlines has canceled all departures out of DIA after 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, said Emily Williams, an airport spokeswoman.

Travel may be impossible, CNN reports, and both flights and schools are being canceled in areas where the white-out blizzard may hit. Snow will blanket the areas where blizzard conditions are likely, such as parts of Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota.

"It's better to be out of it", he says.
