About our Bomb Cyclone news
Latest news on the bomb cyclone, also known as a meteorological bomb or a weather bomb, a weather phenomenon that occurs when a low-pressure system undergoes rapid intensification, or "bombs out". This intensification is characterised by a central pressure drop of at least 24 millibars (mb) in 24 hours or less. Bomb cyclones can produce strong winds and heavy precipitation, leading to dangerous conditions such as blizzards, thunderstorms, and heavy snowfall. They can also cause coastal flooding due to the combination of strong winds and high waves. Bomb cyclones typically form in the winter months over land or water, and they tend to occur most frequently in the North Atlantic Ocean and the Western Pacific Ocean. However, they can also occur in other parts of the world.
