Stormageddon: Powerful Bering Sea storm undergoes BOMBOGENESIS after pressure drops an incredible 55 millibars in 24 hours

That is amazing! Right now, a monster storm is bringing HURRICANE force winds – 90 to 100 mph – to the Central and Eastern Aleutians. And this powerful Bering Sea storm underwent a crazy BOMBOGENESIS with pressure dropping an incredible 55 millibars in 24 hours from 1002 millibars 10 p.m. Friday Alaska time to 947 millibars 10 p.m. Saturday Alaska time.  Yes this is huge… But not the end: Another low pressure area could undergo bombogenesis next week while sweeping across the same area.

High winds culminated at 92 mph at Atka Island and Adak Island as the storm engulfed the Bering Sea late Saturday into early Sunday. As shown in the picture above, the National Weather Service expected waves up to 50 and peak wind gusts up to 120 mph in different areas.

A storm in the Bering Sea has brought winds over 90 mph and huge surf to Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. The low-pressure system’s intensification easily met bombogenesis criteria. via Weather.com

Through Monday the storm system is forecast to weaken over the Bering Sea area. But it’s not over! Another area of low pressure will probably undergo BOMBOGENESIS and engulf the Aleutian Islands on Tuesday with the same insane intensity.

Hope you aren’t currently in the region. Otherwise go undercover!
