A 'bomb cyclone' is about to blast the East Coast

In this case, the storm that's predicted to hit the East Coast tonight through Friday is forecast to be the most intense storm to hit the water off the coast of New England in decades, with a potential pressure drop of 46 millibars, according to Maue.

A storm system is forming east of Florida on Wednesday, but already a mix of ice and snow has brought winter storm warnings to northern Florida and southern Georgia.

All day Thursday meteorologists are going to be glued to the new GOES-East satellite watching a truly awesome extratopical "bomb" cyclone off New England coast. The atmospheric pressure isn't expected to drop quite that quickly, but the Washington Post's "Capital Weather Gang" believes the storm will undergo "explosive strengthening".

The extreme weather will come in two parts.

Further south, the storm's impact will still be substantial.

The major winter storm will continue to impact temperatures in Florida all the way up to ME which is expecting blizzard conditions.

Major east coast winter storm is expected to bring snow, ice, rain, strong winds, and tidal flooding to coastal locations from the southeast U.S.to New England Wednesday into Thursday.

"Winter storm watches and warnings have been issued as far south as parts of north Florida, coastal Georgia, and the low country of SC, including the cities of Savannah, Ga". The difference between the two air masses helps to strengthen the storm system.

"It will be massive", National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Maue warned on Twitter Tuesday.

The storm is also giving forecasters a chance to play with other data-generating instruments, including the new GOES-16 satellite that just settled into position over the Eastern U.S. Five to 8 inches of snow is expected to fall with sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles mph, and gusts up to 50 mph.

Expect another Environment Canada extreme cold warning in the next day or two, with frigid air descending from the Arctic on Friday and into the weekend that could see daytime readings reach a unsafe low of -35 C when the wind chill is factored in.
