‘BOMBOGENESIS’ WITH THUNDERSLEET HITS EAST COAST — AND MORE IS COMING…(The Ice Age Cometh!!)
FEB. 13, 2014
The major winter storm that’s dumping huge amounts of snow on the Northeast and bringing thundersleet to Virginia has been 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!”
