One year ago, a severe winter storm system or “bomb cyclone” hit Nebraska and South Dakota. This caused major flooding, washing away roads, bridges and livestock. Commodity Weather Group meteorologist Dave Streit says this week’s storm has a different set-up. “The one we had last year was different. What worked against them was the slow movement associated with it,” says Streit. “This year, it’s a jet stream that’s more active. Things have a harder time staying put this year.” Streit is not expecting any major flood events from the storm system.
