'Bomb cyclone' to bring high winds and low temps

'Bomb cyclone' drops on region

Forecasters are calling the process causing these low temps in Florida a "Bomb Cyclone" or "Bombogenesis'". Needless to say, winter storm warnings are in affect for numerous cities, as they brace for the worst. We may only see some flurries to possibly 2 inches of accumulation from Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Most locations in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast are predicted to set records for cold temperatures on Friday with highs in the single digits and teens. Eastern Long Island could get 6 to 10 inches of snow and winds clocking 50 miles per hour. Bombogenesis is, in fact, a real meteorological term, and Thursday's storm will fit the bill perfectly. "This is because the rapidly ascending air near the center of the storm must be replaced by air surrounding the storm".

First, a very large and powerful storm will hammer coastal locations from Georgia to ME with ice and snow.

The Mid-Atlantic region will get blanketed in the terrible winter whiteness.

Alexa will soon be able to control ovens and microwaves
For example, a customer can say "Alexa, defrost three pounds of chicken" or "Alexa, microwave for 50 seconds on high". Amazon confirmed the feature had gone live in the USA , with other countries to follow shortly.

In Charleston, one to three inches of snow and sleet is forecast Wednesday, where the Weather Service warns to "plan on hard travel conditions". 5 to 8 inches is predicted for the beaches of DE and Maryland, with as much as a foot possible, depending on the storm's path.

The National Weather Service predicts that the storm could undergo "bombogenesis" - a fancy term that means the storm rapidly intensifying over a 24-hour period, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. However, if the storm heads east and out into seas, the amount of snow will decrease and wind speeds will die down. Simply put, it's going to be cold tomorrow for those on the East Coast, particularly for people located further north, and there could be a lot of snow in places and it'll be very windy. Parts of the USA will be hit as well.

The major winter storm will continue to impact temperatures in Florida all the way up to ME which is expecting blizzard conditions. Colder air looms in the forecast late next week. 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.

The brutal winter storm won't just be felt in Canada.

Full 'Wolf Moon' to illuminate sky tonight
A supermoon will be visible in the skies over OR on New Year's Night, providing the illusion of being a larger moon. But if you miss tonight's moon - never fear, the January 31 moon will be "extra special" according to Nasa .

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

"Some computer models are projecting a minimum central air pressure of below 950 millibars at its peak, which would be almost unheard of for this part of the world outside of a hurricane", wrote Mashable's Andrew Freedman.

Cars spun out of control on icy overpasses from Texas to Georgia, while the water park at Disney World and other Florida theme parks were closed because of the unusually cold temperatures, adding to the misery of a long cold snap across America.

In other parts of the United States, dangerously cold temperatures have been blamed for at least a dozen deaths as well as freezing a water tower in Iowa and halting ferry services in NY. "You can call any low pressure system a cyclone". Be sure to stay warm!
