In this case, the storm that's predicted to hit the East Coast tonight through Friday is forecast to be the most intense storm to hit the water off the coast of New England in decades, with a potential pressure drop of 46 millibars, according to Maue.
So, get ready for a nasty winter storm stretching from parts of northern Florida to the New England area. That's when a cyclone rapidly intensifies over a 24-hour period.
Typical pressure rests around 1010 millibars, and most major rain and snow storms in the United States land around 995 or 990, the Washington Post reports.
In addition, a weather event that experts call a "bomb cyclone" - which is best described as a freezing hurricane - is now brewing in the Atlantic. "As exciting as this is, please use extreme caution if you are driving & don't expose yourself to the cold for too long without proper gear", said the Tallahassee Police Department along with the hashtags #SunshineState #SnowDay #WinterIsHere. The storm will move up the East Coast over the next two days, bringing plenty of headaches.
As Jason Samenow of The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang reports, "A monster storm will hammer coastal locations from Georgia to ME with ice and snow". The real-world impact is a cold-core winter storm that resembles a tropical cyclone with regard to barometric pressure, wind speed, and precipitation, if not in temperature.
