Blizzard forecast for Midwest could break April snow records

(Worthy News) - It appears winter isn't finished quite yet. A major blizzard is expected to dump heavy snow on parts of the Midwest in the coming days, possibly setting new records for the month of April.

Forecasters say the low-pressure system could break the all-time pressure record for April in parts of the Great Plains.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meteorologist David Roth said the storm could be a "bomb cyclone," in which the pressure drops 24 millibars in 24 hours. A bomb cyclone hit Colorado and Nebraska last month as part of a storm system that killed several people. Forecasters have issued another bomb cyclone warning as part of this new storm system.
