Watches, warnings and advisories for the storm cover about 1.5 million square miles, which is roughly half of the area of the continental United States - and they stretch from the Mexican border to the Canadian border.

The storm is also expected to bring up to 18 inches of snow in parts of Wyoming and Colorado.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem closed all state offices Thursday as the blizzard conditions moved in, and later in the day ordered the opening of the state's Emergency Operations Center to handle the response to the blizzard and flooding.

"Heavy rains.isolated flooding and severe weather will accompany these thunderstorms as they march fairly quickly eastward", the weather service predicts.

Shortly after midnight, four of the six runways at Denver International Airport had been cleared, spokeswoman Emily Williams told Reuters.

"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". There were no immediate reports of injuries.

As the storm moves across the USA, a mix of severe weather is expected to accompany it. "Please stop by the customer service booths on Concourses A, B or at baggage claim 9 in the terminal and pick up a blanket", the airport tweet Wednesday evening. It will move through the Upper Mississippi Valley and Upper Great Lakes region on Thursday, NWS said.

National Guard troops used specialized vehicles with tank-like treads to rescue stranded drivers in Colorado in the wake of a massive late-winter storm that unleashed heavy rain and snow on parts of the Midwest early March 14.

An enormous area was buffeted by powerful winds, which exceeded 100 miles per hour in a few spots.

Denver Public Schools closed Wednesday because of "severe winter weather and road conditions", and more than two dozen schools districts in South Dakota are closed due to weather. The San Juan Mountains, Central Rockies, and parts of the Central to Northern Plains are expecting 12 to 18 inches of snow, with isolated amounts of 2 feet. Ice jams are a major concern along rivers in this region.
