  • NYC, Long Island brace for winter storm

In other words, the low air pressure is creating an especially strong storm.

National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Maue drew some attention when he posted a message to Twitter yesterday about the "a truly unbelievable extratopical "bomb" cyclone" that's predicted to blow up off the New England coast today.

Bombogenesis is said to occur when a storm's central barometric pressure drops at least 24 millibars in 24 hours. "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.

Alexa Gets Cooking With Microwave & Oven Support
Devices from Amazon and Google are the clear leaders in the smart speaker category with their respective Echo and Home products. You might, for example, tell Alexa to set the microwave for 3 minutes or ask Alexa to preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

The winter mix along with low wind chills could cause widespread power outages and ice over roadways, making commuting treacherous for millions of Americans from northern Florida to southern Virginia, the National Weather Service said in a series of warnings.

How much the storm affects the coast is contingent on a number of factors, most notably how far out to sea it tracks.

The major winter storm will continue to impact temperatures in Florida all the way up to ME which is expecting blizzard conditions.

But, Khloe wasn't buying what she was selling, as you can see by the way the rest of the conversation played out. She quipped: "They say that men take on sympathy cravings, or pregnancy or whatever".

Meteorologists say snow and sleet are forecasted for southern states like Florida and SC, and blizzard-like conditions are expected for northern states.

Thursday morning through late evening, wind gusts are likely to reach over 50 miles per hour along the coastline.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch in advance of a "major coastal storm" possible Thursday and Thursday Night. "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". As it does so, it will undergo a rapid intensification, or as it's called in meteorology, bombogenesis.
