'Bomb cyclone' to bring high winds and low temps

  • 'Bomb cyclone' to bring high winds and low temps

The storm is expected to bring as much as 6 inches of snow to the region. By Thursday, the exploding storm will, in many ways, resemble a winter hurricane, battering easternmost New England with potentially damaging winds in addition to blinding snow. Although the effects of the storm will be acutely felt by East Coast residents, the most extreme weather conditions are expected to remain offshore. The closer the storm gets, the more accurate the predictions about it will be.

It's part of a major wind storm moving up the East coast that's bringing ice, freezing rain, snow and strong winds. The National Weather Service has already posted winter storm watches from Lake City, Fla.to Norfolk.

GFS model shows accumulating snow from the Georgia-Florida border all the way up the East Coast to Maine.

From Norfolk to the Maryland and DE beaches, including much of the southern half of the Delmarva Peninsula, 3 to 6 inches of heavy snow are predicted from Wednesday evening to Thursday afternoon.

Further south, the storm's impact will still be substantial. But small shifts to the west could bring some snow to these cities. New England, the northeastern region of the United States, will possibly experience blizzard conditions late Thursday, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), bombogenesis or bomb cyclone "occurs when a midlatitude cyclone rapidly intensifies, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours".

'Bomb cyclone' to bring high winds and low temps

European model simulation of storm pressure drop between Wednesday and Thursday. "The term cyclone refers to a low pressure system - this is not a hurricane, but a strong area of low pressure with a cold core".

The major winter storm will continue to impact temperatures in Florida all the way up to ME which is expecting blizzard conditions.

The biggest concern arising out of this storm will be the winds that will batter the coasts of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, P.E.I. and Newfoundland. That is what is expected to happen with this storm as it passes by the Mid-Atlantic Coast.

Temperature wise: it's going to be cold. But brutal temperatures will more than make up for the lack of snow: highs in the single digits and winds up to 21 miles per hour are expected Friday and Saturday. Locations circled indicate coldest on record. This storm will likely continue to surpass previous temperature lows.

Top wind gust is forecast for Friday evening from the American (GFS) model.
