What Is Bomb Cyclone 2022 And How It Forms ?
A monster storm crashed over USA last 24th December with heavy snow fall and rain with high intensified wind left major impact in several cities in New York and Canada. Meteorologist called it “bomb Cyclone” and it is not very rare but the intensity of this storm was havoc which cause heavy rain fall with snow and high speed wind.
Storms forms when a high pressure air mass collide with a low pressure air mass. Wind passes from High pressure to low pressure air, creates storm. Bomb Cyclone defines how rapidly pressure falls in the low pressure mass.
For creating a Bomb Cyclone air pressure should be dropped in the pace of 24 millibars in 24 hours. The more quickly increase the differences of pressure between high and low pressure air mass, produce the more stronger winds.
The process of increase intensification of storm called “Bombogenesis”. Rotation of earth creates a cyclonic effect when wind started blowing. When viewed from above rotation is anti clock wise in Northern Hemisphere according to meteorologist.
John Moore, a Meteorologist said to New York Times, “Condition for a Bomb Cyclone had been met over the Great Lakes, where frigid Arctic air from the meandering polar vertex met very warm air to the east.
As the area where the two air masses meet, called the Arctic front, moved northward and east ward, conditions for Bobogenesis should continue moving as well. “
Bomb Cyclone 2022 Effect in US

According to Met department, Eventually the arctic warm air covers the majority of the US and pressure difference will be smaller, the storm will loose strength. Next week above average temperature will be continue, prediction from Met department.
