2018 bombogenesis What Is Bombogenesis? Everything You Need To Know About This Blizzards Buzzword

ABC NewsThe storm system will begin to strengthen late Wednesday and move up the East Coast, spreading snow into the eastern mid-Atlantic states and southern New Jersey. "As usual for East Coast winter storms, though, the devil lies in the details, including exactly how far northwest the storm tracks and the width of its swath of heavy precipitation", according to Weather Underground.

Bombogenesis, or a storm bombing out, means the surface pressure of the storm will drop 24 millibars in 24 hours, or at the rate of 1 millibar per hour. "As exciting as this is, please use extreme caution if you are driving & don't expose yourself to the cold for too long without proper gear", said the Tallahassee Police Department along with the hashtags #SunshineState #SnowDay #WinterIsHere.

Tallahassee wasn't the only Florida community to be impacted by the winter storm. "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". Five to 8 inches of snow is expected to fall with sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles mph, and gusts up to 50 mph.
