An intense extra-tropical cyclone (bombogenesis) will move across the north Atlantic tomorrow, nearing Iceland/Greenland on Thursday, Feb 19-21st

A very intense cyclone (a so-called ‘bombogenesis’ cyclone or a weather bomb) will develop across the North Atlantic later today and move towards Iceland and Greenland tomorrow and on Thursday. A violent windstorm will result from this cyclone, bringing extremely severe winds in excess of 150 km/h as well as significant wave heights up to 15 metres. The system develops over the northwest Atlantic today as a sharp wave ejects off Nova Scotia (Canada) and a trough rapidly deepens over the warmer waters of Atlantic ocean. A very intense surface cyclone will be associated with this deepening trough, resulting in a very intense wind field in the lowest levels. Attached is the sequence of cyclone development across the North Atlantic. … Continue reading An intense extra-tropical cyclone (bombogenesis) will move across the north Atlantic tomorrow, nearing Iceland/Greenland on Thursday, Feb 19-21st
