The major blizzard that pummeled Colorado on Wednesday will result in another snow day for some of the state's largest school districts.

The "bomb cyclone" brought hurricane-force winds to Colorado, and led to power outages, closed highways and toppled trees along the Front Range and Eastern Plains. 

Some of the school closures Thursday are the result of ongoing power outage issues. More than 191,000 Xcel Energy customers have been without power in the Denver region, and crews have described the outage as a "multi-day recovery" effort. 

The winter storm is expected to start moving out of the state late Wednesday night, with blizzard warnings for the Interstate 25 corridor set to expire at midnight. 

Here's a look at some of the major school districts that will be closed on Thursday. 

Denver Public Schools - DPS announced just before 8:30 p.m. that all schools and district offices will be closed on Thursday due to power outages across the city and poor road conditions. 

Jefferson County Public Schools - Jeffco announced that all schools will be closed Thursday. Multiple schools within the district are without power from the blizzard. 

Cherry Creek Public Schools - CCC, which was closed Wednesday, will stay closed on Thursday. All after school activities have been canceled as well. 

27J Schools - All schools, administrative offices and after school activities have been canceled for Thursday.

Douglas County School District - DougCo will also be closed Thursday due to adverse weather conditions. All other school-related events have been canceled as well.
