'Bomb Cyclone' Winter Storm Grayson Expected To Undergo Bombogenesis

Trucks spread grit on bridges and major streets ahead of the storm and police closed a major causeway and several bridges because of ice.

Forecasters are calling the process causing these low temps in Florida a "Bomb Cyclone" or "Bombogenesis'". New England, the northeastern region of the United States, will possibly experience blizzard conditions late Thursday, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

'Bomb cyclone' drops on region

"That's what will be happening with this storm", Hull said.

High temperatures in Buffalo will be held in the single digits both Friday and Saturday with overnight lows well below zero. Eastern Long Island could get 6 to 10 inches of snow and winds clocking 50 miles per hour. Meteorologists called it "bombogenesis" during the blizzard that took place in Boston in 2015. "This is because the rapidly ascending air near the center of the storm must be replaced by air surrounding the storm".

The incoming storm has prompted fears of damage and power outages, with New Brunswick contracting extra crews to be on hand in case of emergency.

Shelters were opened across the South as weather warnings blanketed the region, including much of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Charleston was forecast to get 2 to 4 inches of snow and ice. FOX 5's Mike Thomas goes into more detail here. The storm in question, which will impact coastal areas from Georgia to ME, is given its extreme name because of the predicted rapid pressure drop, an indication of the storm's strength. However, if the storm heads east and out into seas, the amount of snow will decrease and wind speeds will die down.

A massive winter storm known as a "bomb cyclone" will smash into the US East Coast this week. Throughout eastern MA and eastern ME, the combination of wind and snow could create blizzard conditions, especially if the storm wobbles west.

That's without windchill. With the cold air factored in, temperatures will be between -30 C and -40 C later this week and into the weekend.

This East Coast storm will move fast & deepen very rapidly.

The #BombCyclone, as it's being referred to, is legitimately a powerful cyclone that will form over the next day.

Temperature wise: it's going to be cold.
