What is a bomb cyclone?
A massive winter storm called a bomb cyclone. This storm will be responsible for heavy rains, severe thunderstorms, isolated flooding, heavy snows, blizzard conditions and high winds.This type of storm usually depends on the ocean or another large body of water for its power. During the winter, the relatively warm air coming off the ocean and the cold air above land can collide to create a sharp drop in atmospheric pressure. It also known as a “winter hurricane”.
