Bombogenesis - East Coast 2018

Going to get a decent sized snow storm on the east coast today-tomorrow. The news media already has it at Armageddon status.

Local weather channels call it 'Bombogenesis' - a rapidly strengthening storm of hurricane-like caliber.

Rainfall warning and high winds for Southwest Nova Scotia. Giving gusts up to 140 km along the coast, thats high for us. We have had snow off the water every day for the last week... 60 cm total.

Cloudy. Rain at times heavy beginning in the morning except snow inland in the morning. Rainfall amount 30 to 40 mm except snowfall amount 10 cm inland. Wind east 20 km/h gusting to 40 increasing to 40 gusting to 70 in the morning then to 80 gusting to 100 except gusting to 140 along parts of the coast in the afternoon. High plus 5.

Thats Yarmouth county only. Digby count and up is looking for 25 cm before it changes to rain. Pretty fine line there. Might be right.

Bombogenesis is an ominous sounding term frequently used in the winter to describe powerful low pressure systems that intensify rapidly.
The process of bombogenesis begins as cyclogenesis, meaning the development or strengthening of an area of low pressure or trough.
