On January 4th, 2018 a crazy weather event slammed into the Northeast United States coast. This phenomenon is known as a bomb cyclone.

A crazy weather phenomenon is expected to slam into the Northeast U.S. coast on Thursday, January 4th.

“This will be a truly amazing extratropical ‘bomb’ cyclone off the New England coast with pressures as low as Hurricane Sandy (but not the same path, thank God) and near hurricane-force winds.” – Perry Samson, University of Michigan Professor of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering & co-founder of the Weather Underground

A bomb cyclone is a low-pressure system that quickly intensifies into a powerful hurricane-like storm through a process called bombogenesis when a cold air mass collides with a warm one.
