Winter storm Ulmer turned into a "bomb" cyclone when its central pressure dropped from 994 millibars to 968 millibars, leaving blizzard conditions and flood threats across parts of the central U.S. Its low-pressure center is among the strongest recorded in parts of the central Plains. The strong winds caused widespread power outages, forcing cancellation of flights, and left hundreds of motorists stranded by blinding snow.
