Major Winter Storm Is Now A ‘Bombogenesis’
FEB. 13, 2014
The major winter storm slamming the Northeast can now be called a “bombogenesis,” a term used by meteorologists to describe a low pressure system that rapidly intensifies as it moves out over warmer ocean water.
Shortly before 11 a.m. Thursday, Eric Fisher, the chief meteorologist for CBS News in Boston, tweeted: “#BOMBOGENESIS! Weather term loved by many, happening now south of Long Island. Falling 4mb/hr!”
