In fact, there was a bomb cyclone off the coast of the East Coast in October.

The term "bomb cyclone" is new to meteorological terminology, though phrases like "polar vortex" have been used in previous years.

Major east coast winter storm is expected to bring snow, ice, rain, strong winds, and tidal flooding to coastal locations from the southeast U.S.to New England Wednesday into Thursday. A pressure drop of this magnitude shows how much air is being drawn into the storm's circulation, allowing it to gain strength at a quicker, more intensified rate. The National Weather Service reported snow fell in the city Wednesday morning. It will be massive - fill up entire Western Atlantic off U.S. East Coast.

Temperatures were in the 20s and 30s overnight in parts of Florida.

"This is not record-breaking for Canada or Alaska or northern Siberia, it's just misplaced", said Judah Cohen, a winter storm expert for Atmospheric Environmental Research.

Wednesday's winter storm warning in Tallahassee was the first in nearly four years, reported The Weather Channel.

M eteorologists say that the storm is experiencing "bombogenesis", meaning rapid atmospheric pressure has fallen below 24 millibars in less than 24 hours. "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". This could make the storm as strong as a hurricane, and 30-50 miles per hour winds will batter the coast.

The IS poses great threat to the region as they are likely to influence supporters to launch attacks on Israel, which could be mistaken as perpetrations by Hamas, on the other side.


A storm system is forming east of Florida on Wednesday, but already a mix of ice and snow has brought winter storm warnings to northern Florida and southern Georgia.

Take a look at how New York City is coping.

"Winter storm watches and warnings have been issued as far south as parts of north Florida, coastal Georgia, and the low country of SC, including the cities of Savannah, Ga".

"The last time we had measurable snow was 1989", Humphreys said. It caused a travel nightmare in Atlanta and across Florida and Alabama.

"It's snowing in Tallahassee! @NWSTallahassee measured 0.1" of snow/sleet on their roof @floridastate at 8:30 AM.

Parts of SC could see 5 to 6 inches of snow. Valdosta, Georgia, was getting slammed with snow Wednesday morning as well. Roads won't be plowed with the speed seen in places like OH or MI.
