2018 "Bomb" Cyclone

posted Jan 4, 2018, 8:40 AM by Jim Herrmann
This week across much of the country we are seeing frigid temps, high winds, and snow.  An impressive low pressure system is moving up the east coast pulling arctic air and generating measurable snowfall as far south as Jacksonville, FL.  It has been classified as a "Bomb" Cyclone because the pressure drop as it approaches is so severe (> 24mb).  We must be diligent in our preparations for cold weather hazards.  Dress in layers, cover all exposed skin, and pack extras to be prepared.
