It’s not even winter and we are experiencing extreme stormy blizzards and cyclonic depressions in most parts of the world. It’s as if we had entered the ‘geologic timescale’ of weather warfare.

Now, do you feel it? Do you feel how they try to control the weather? Here the latest examples of weather modification! Over the weekend, two weather bombs blasted Alaska (a double bombogenesis!) and New England, while a third vicious blizzard is currently dropping meters of snow on the Alps across Europe.

And I forecast this insane extreme weather is going to rage out-of-control over the next few years… But now let’s discuss what happened on both US coasts and in the European Alps.

Double bomb cyclone sweeps across Aleutian Islands, Alaska

The first cyclonic bombogenesis of 2020 developped across the Pacific ocean end of last week.

A bomb cyclone occurs when a storm rapidly intensifies, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours.

As shown from the data, the pression at the center of the storm diminished by 72 millibars between last Thursday (1013 mbar) and Saturday (941mbar). That’s a double whammy storm!

  • 1013 mbar at 00 UTC, Dec. 3rd
  • 1007 mbar at 06 UTC, Dec. 3rd
  • 1005 mbar at 12 UTC, Dec. 3rd
  • 998 mbar at 18 UTC, Dec. 3rd
  • 993 mbar at 00 UTC, Dec. 4th
  • 983 mbar at 06 UTC, Dec. 4th
  • 969 mbar at 12 UTC, Dec. 4th
  • 960 mbar at 18 UTC, Dec. 4th
  • 956 mbar at 00 UTC, Dec. 5th
  • 949 mbar at 06 UTC, Dec. 5th
  • 941 mbar at 12 UTC, Dec. 5th

The monster explosive cyclogenesis was accompanied by powerful sustained winds of up to 90 mph (150 kmh) and gusts up to 125 mph (200 kmh)… Yes, that deep has become a very violent North Pacific storm within just 36 hours. Amazing!

And of course such a violent wind will form giant waves, some models suggesting higher than 16 meters (52 feet) and spreading to the south of the storm’s core.

You should expect over the next five days lots of snow (150 – 200 cm or 4.9 – 6.6 feet) inland along with far western Canada and southeast Alaska.

Bomb cyclone Nor’easter hits New England

The East Coast has just experienced its first nor’easter of the season. And this first winter storm has even intensified into a bombogenesis!

New England was in the eye of the cyclone with 70 mph sustained winds and reports of widespread power outages in Maine (200,000) and New Hampshire (60,000).

Up to one foot was reported in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire and Paxton, Massachusetts. 17.9 inches of snow fell on Mount Washington, New Hampshire.

Extreme snow storm in the Alps

The worst affected areas have been the Dolomites, Veneto (e.g. Cortina), Sudtirol (e.g. Alta Badia), Trentino (e.g. Madonna di Campiglio), Lombardy (e.g. Livigno), Carinthia (e.g. Nassfeld) and Osttirol (e.g. Lienz).

These areas have typically seen between 1.5m and 2.5m of new snow above 1800m since Friday, with 3m or more in places.

There have even been reports that 1.9m of snow fell in the village of Kornat in Carinthia in just 24 hours.

Yes! It seems that winter has struck with a vengeance in some parts of Alaska, New England and alpine Europe with plenty of bombogenesis, blizzard conditions, snow and high winds. And the winter has not started yet! More extreme weather news on Severe Weather, Daily Access News, Planet Ski, Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.

  1. Bomb cyclone Bombogenenesis is a very annoying description. How about “rapidly intensifying storm”. Meteorological winter starts on December 1st. Makes way more sense than the 21st of December which is astronomical winter.

  2. If it happens in USA cities like that we are going to see a lot of deads due to accidents. Seattle area people driving fast on icy road and keep crashing to each others coming down the hill.
    In BC thanks God we do not have crazy weather like that Alaska. It is call adoptation, how ever not every one like us here to adopt weathers, flood, cyclone, diseases , because we raised by strange sounds news agency. We are Prepared Prepared better than a tiger!

    • I can remember driving city main street on black ice in a truck for a while. You can be going 5mph, and have to start slowing down a hundred yards before a 4-way stop/intersection. You start to be able to feel ice on the road as almost a tactile sense.
      Even in Utah, I can remember times where we saw city folks unable to handle conditions. Most folks that are used to ice and huge snowdrifts have practice behind them.

      Once you practice, you gain confidence. Less likely to make a bone-head move. Most people forget to ease up on gas when they hit a patch of ice, and when they feel the loss of traction, they panic and hit the brakes. 😬

  3. Growing up in norther Wisconsin in the snow belt, one has to wonder what all the fuss is about. Up there we have many houses with a doorway on the second floor without a deck. If you wonder why, it was because a serious snow storm with cold blowing winds following many times drifted shut your downstairs exits. After those storms you did what every other Yooper was doing……shoveling!
    It’s a whimpy, lazy and whiny generation growing up today who prefer to live in their parents basement rather then grow up and face a hardship. It’s a sad annotation on today’s generation and the parents who allowed it to happen!

  4. People that live in these areas are tough as nails. They prepare for weather like this crap. They know how to drive on black ice, and prep. They have roadside emergency kits in vehicles. They won’t be bothered.
    Having lived in MN, I was a novice at ice driving when I took a job there. One night, I drove into an empty and icy parking lot at night, and did figure eights on ice with my vehicle. You get the ass end pitched, and work on your gas pedal feathering, and steering correction. Takes about five minutes of practice. Also, you put sand bags in your vehicle over the rear axle. Keeps you planted for better traction.
    We had supplies at home for being snowed in. My friend’s father brought us a freezer full of venison too. Nobody went hungry. You get used to it, same as anything.

    I worry more for Alaska people, don’t care much for north eastern lefty folks. Only the rural folks in NE are worth a crap anyways.
