"The system will have an equivalent low pressure of a Category 1 hurricane," says CNN meteorologist Dave Henn.
In general, a bomb cyclone is determined by a pressure drop of 24 millibars (unit of pressure) within 24 hours.
This is not a classic Norwegian world, but strong winds will continue for days it affected the mid-Atlantic and northeast, if not a little stronger.
Models indicate that it is likely to stay more onshore compared to the coastal storm last Friday.
Wind can reach tropical storm force (39 mph +) with even greater gusts by Wednesday and Thursday for places like New York, Boston, and Portland, Maine.
Some areas may be prominent with winds reaching more than 60 mph. Because most trees still hold most of their leaves, these winds may have an easier time removing trees and power lines, potentially cutting off the energy of thousands.
Expect a lot of delays and cancellation of flights to New England on Thursday and Friday as strong winds linger until Friday night before diminishing.
Rainstorms can cause flooding in cities in some areas.
Many places in the Northeast will receive 2-4 inches of rain, with individual areas receiving up to 6 inches. The rain will decrease throughout the day on Thursday, after which it will fully rise from northern New England by Friday.
The storm will not be a major snowmobile for most of the region, except for a small part of New York State.
This is the second coastal storm to hit New England in a week. Last week, a storm stood near the shores of the Mid-Atlantic Ocean, shattering seas and bringing strong wind that shredded beaches up and down the east coast. This has caused costly coastal damage due to beach erosion and coastal flooding.
