Storm to bring snow, then explode as 'bomb cyclone'

Called a "bomb cyclone" because its pressure fell so quickly and indicated explosive strengthening, what is resembling a winter hurricane will hammer coastal locations from Georgia to ME with ice and snow.

Winter Storm Grayson has already started to hit the southeastern coast, with flurries of snow in Tallahassee, Florida.

A massive winter storm known as a "bomb cyclone" will smash into the US East Coast this week. "The rule of thumb is that if this area of low pressure drops more than 24 millibars in less than 24 hours than we have our strong winter system".

Florida Governor Rick Scott on Tuesday urged residents in the northern part of his Sunshine State to prepare for the cold.

Meteorologists say a monster storm called a "snow hurricane" or "bomb cyclone" is expected to bring wintry weather to Florida and Georgia on Wednesday.

While bomb cyclones are merely a meteorological description of a storm and are not named to describe their impacts, they are often heavy storms that are accompanied by hurricane-force winds, dumps of heavy rain or snowfall and flooding along coasts.

Winter Storm Grayson is expected to blanket the coastal states with "arctic air", leading to temperatures that are 20 to 40 degrees below normal January averages.

Parts of Florida reported light snow with temperatures just below freezing.

"This winter storm typically brings damaging wind conditions from 50-70 miles per hour along with blizzard-like precipitation", Bart said.

"Driving conditions will remain hazardous over the coming days, with black ice an ongoing concern through the weekend", Cooper said, adding the storm has caused hundreds of auto accidents. Snow, sleet and freezing rain may increase in eastern North Carolina and southeast Virginia by Wednesday afternoon.

Tallahassee received.1 inches of snow accumulation by Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Expect another Environment Canada extreme cold warning in the next day or two, with frigid air descending from the Arctic on Friday and into the weekend that could see daytime readings reach a unsafe low of -35 C when the wind chill is factored in.
