We aren't supposed to have a major blizzard in April. Less than a month after a "bomb cyclone" caused apocalyptic flooding in the central part of the country, another "bomb cyclone" is hitting the exact same area. One meteorologist has called it "a life-threatening storm", and at this moment over four million people are under blizzard warnings. South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska and Kansas are going to get absolutely hammered before the storm finally moves east on Friday. The authorities are warning that this new "bomb cyclone" will cause additional flooding in the region, but at this point we do not know how bad that flooding will be.
The good news is that the ground has been softened up by warmer weather since the last "bomb cyclone", and that should mean that more of the moisture is absorbed before it flows into the major rivers.
But the bad news is that we are being told that this storm "could break records". The following comes from the Daily Mail…
A historic blizzard that could break records for April has hit the Great Plains and Upper Midwest.
