Chelsea Priest Explains ‘Bombogenesis’.
We've seen a lot of alarming terms on the internet to describe tomorrow's Southcoast storm. #BlizzardBomb #BombCyclone and #Bombogenesis are now trending. What in the heck is "bombogenesis"? We just had to ask Chelsea Priest from ABC 6 this morning.
The Boston Globe had an interesting article this morning that got into further detail about the genesis of 'bombogenesis. The term was apparently coined by a former MIT professor. Basically, it's when the barometric pressure drops extremely rapidly over 24 hours.
There are bound to be a number of closings and cancellations tomorrow here on the Southcoast due to this Blizzard Bomb.
