Bomb Cyclone

A meteorological ‘bomb cyclone‘ is set to ‘blast’ along the East Coast and extreme cold will soon follow.

The phrase ‘bomb cyclone’ doesn’t refer to the storm Grayson. Instead, it refers to a weather phenomenon expected to occur.

The official term is explosive cyclogenesis, or bombogenesis.

The storm is expected to be the strongest the region has seen in decades, will impact off the coast of New England.
