Violent Bomb Cyclone Explodes Off U.S. East Coast Generating Hurricane-Force Winds and Gigantic Waves

A rapidly intensifying bombogenesis is developing along the US East Coast.

The system generated violent hurricane-force winds around the core and major waves offshore.

The central pressure of this storm system plunged more than 40 millibars from Friday morning (1004mb at 7am) to early Saturday (959mb by 3am). Kaboom!

That’s more than enough to satisfy the criteria for explosive cyclogenesis (central pressure drop of at least 24 millibars in 24 hours).

Fortunately, the powerful bomb cyclone stayed off the US coast.

The track of the bombogenesis was far enough east to prevent it from bringing significant impacts to most of the Northeast, except parts of southeastern New England, where high winds and snow was reported.

The National Weather Service issued high wind warnings for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket into Saturday morning.

A wind gust of 66 mph was reported early Saturday on Nantucket and trees have come down on parts of Cape Cod.

But look at this amazing speed on the radar map below: 126 mph!

That’s similar to a Category 3 hurricane!

However, the core of the low-pressure system will whizz past Newfoundland tomorrow evening, likely creating another record-breaking blizzard with violent winds and heavy snowfall across the island.

Just a reminder, in January 2020, another bombogenesis blizzard hit Newfoundland, Canada! And it rewrote the storm history of the Canadian island. More extreme weather events on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [SWE]

  1. Everything is becoming abnormal in everyday life, the weather, diseases, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, the food chain is failing all over the earth because of floods, droughts, insect infestations. Just like what was written in the bible thousands of years ago and people still refuse to believe the word of God.
