"Bombogenesis" was coined as a combination of cyclogenesis, or the formation of a cyclone or storm, and bomb as its effects can lash out in affected areas like an explosion.
In a statement, the Department of Foreign Affairs said as many as 340,000 Filipinos could be affected by the meteorological phenomenon called "bombogenesis" or area of rapidly declining low pressure.
The storm was powered by a rapid plunge in barometric pressure that some weather forecasters were referring to as bombogenesis or a "bomb cyclone" and which brought fast, heavy snowfall and high winds.
The bombogenesis phenomenon occurs when a storm's barometric pressure drops 24 millibars in 24 hours.
The National Weather Service also (http://www.ibtimes.com/bomb-cyclone-winter-storm-grayson-expected-undergo-bombogenesis-2636710) predicted Wednesday that the storm could undergo something called "(http://www.ibtimes.com/bomb-cyclone-winter-storm-grayson-expected-undergo-bombogenesis-2636710) bombogenesis ." That means the storm could quickly escalate over a period of 24 hours.
The National Weather Service predicts that the storm could undergo "bombogenesis" - a fancy term that means the storm rapidly intensifying over a 24-hour period, (http://www.noaa.gov/stories/east-coast-storm-born-from-bombogenesis-it-s-less-scary-than-it-sounds) according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration .
(http://www.ibtimes.com/bomb-cyclone-winter-storm-grayson-expected-undergo-bombogenesis-2636710) It comes from a mashup of the longer scientific term "bombogenesis," which describes how quickly it intensified over a 24-hour period, and a reference to its potentially hurricane-force winds.
Although it may not seem like it, "bombogenesis" is a real word.
For winter storm Stella to undergo bombogenesis, or to be considered a weather bomb, the central pressure of the system would have to drop 24 millibars within 24 hours.
Once the warm, tropical air crashes into mountain of cold air, a violent explosion of meteorological energy will occur called bombogenesis. (http://www.theweatherprediction.com/habyhints/188/) According to WeatherPrediction.com , "bombogenesis typically occurs between a cold continental air mass and warm ocean waters or between a cold polar air mass and a much warmer air mass."
Nuri's central pressure, during that bombogenesis, will intensify and deepen from 970 MB late Thursday to between 918 to 922 MB late Friday.
