Powerful coastal storm bringing snow and ice from Florida to Maine

Powerful coastal storm bringing snow and ice from Florida to Maine

In other words, the low air pressure is creating an especially strong storm.

At least three people are dead and more than 3,000 flights have been cancelled as a brutal winter storm pummels the U.S. East Coast. That's when a cyclone rapidly intensifies over a 24-hour period.

Winter is just two weeks old, and the coldest weather during it is expected each year late in January, and into the first week or two of February.

Forecasters anticipate a "bomb cyclone" could smash the Northeast this week, but the term isn't a ratings-driven hyperbole; it's a name rooted in the science of meteorology.

While bomb cyclones are merely a meteorological description of a storm and are not named to describe their impacts, they are often heavy storms that are accompanied by hurricane-force winds, dumps of heavy rain or snowfall and flooding along coasts.

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".

Now this how you start a good ol' hockey game (if it was 1976). "The first period will be very important to us tonight". Matthews, with his 18th of the season, and Sharks defenceman Brenden Dillon traded goals late in the first period.

Parts of 15 states from Florida to ME will see effects from this developing coastal storm.

The storm is forming off the Florida coast Wednesday and will deposit snow and freezing rain all along the East Coast, where the National Weather Service has issued winter storm warnings. In Charleston, South Carolina, one to three inches of snow and sleet are expected.

Snowfall amounts in DE are dependent on the track of the storm, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Gorse.

Most of the cancellations were in New Jersey, Boston and NY, which are seeing snowfall rates of up to 3 inches (7.62 centimeters) an hour and wind gusts up to 80 miles (128 kilometers) per hour. And the icy, snowing, frigid conditions making life miserable for many are about to get worse.

Baltimore and Washington could receive snowfall dependent on the storm's path, and so could Philadelphia and New York City, but as much as 4 to 8 inches could fall between Atlantic City and eastern Long Island.

This usually happens when a storm system moves over the warm waters of the western Atlantic and the Gulf Stream at the same time arctic cold air moves in behind from the west.
