If those areas do get ferocious 100 miles per hour wind gusts, the gusts would be "equivalent to the wind speed of a Category 2 hurricane", CNN reported.

The latest update from the Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service is now calling for up to two feet of snow in some areas, along with unsafe winds and risky travel conditions.

Utility company Xcel Energy said about 130,000 commercial and residential customers in Colorado were without power due to high winds and wet heavy snow. Southwest, Frontier and United have all canceled flights, Denver Airport wrote on Twitter.

"70 million people will potentially be affected by this storm system across the Plains states, bringing blizzard conditions, potential tornadoes and flash flooding", Dean said Wednesday on "FOX & friends".

Amid the expected severe weather, more than 1,200 flights within, into or out of the USA were canceled as of Wednesday morning, according to the website FlightAware. The powerful winds have left over 200,000 Denver area residents without power while Colorado Gov. Jared Polis has activated the Colorado National Guard for search and rescue operations for stranded drivers in the blizzard.

Blizzard and winter storm warnings have been issued in parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota.

The Lower Mississippi Valley and southern Plains will experience thunderstorms with heavy rain and flooding.

Travel will be risky and nearly impossible in some places.

"On top of the heavy snow, strong winds will lead to blizzard conditions with very low visibility and snow-packed roads", said AccuWeather meteorologist Steve Travis. Denver is under a blizzard warning, and snow accumulations of five to eight inches are expected.

"I can't say I've seen a storm with such intensity this far west in the Plains", said CBS News climate and weather contributor Jeff Berardelli.

A 250-mile (402-kilometer) stretch of Interstate 80 from Cheyenne to Rock Springs in southern Wyoming was closed, along with a 300-mile (483-kilometer) section of Interstate 25 from Buffalo, Wyoming, to the Colorado border.

The storm is forecast to rapidly intensify overnight Wednesday east of the Colorado Rockies and trek slowly northeast through Thursday, bringing a variety of extreme weather from New Mexico to the Midwest. Snow is expected to taper off by midday Thursday, but strong winds may persist through the evening.

The storm could also cause flooding, as rain falls on accumulated snow and rivers clogged with ice begin to rise.
