The Met Office has said: "A 'weather bomb' is an unofficial term for a low pressure system whose central pressure falls 24 millibars in 24 hours, in a process known as explosive cyclogenesis."
The overall results show that the meteorological parameters change during precipitation in North-West of Iran due to the Black Sea cyclogenesis. Thus, further studies and index determination can be used as a tool for prediction.
Explosive cyclogenesis is defined as when the central pressure of a low falls by more than 24mb in 24 hours.
There are other areas where, for local reasons and especially where favorable climatological situations are of frequent occurrence (for example, cyclogenesis), active marine fronts and even upwelling areas of potentially fertile deep waters repeatedly appear.
"The broad geographic regions of cyclogenesis, and therefore also the regions affected by tropical cyclones, are not expected to change significantly," reports a group of 11 storm specialists in the January Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
The winter maximum primarily results from frequent frontal passages and cyclogenesis in the western Gulf of Mexico (Saucier, 1949).

The vibrant video shows the deep cyclogenesis by enhancing temperature and moisture characteristics of air masses.
For example, Gomis and Alonso [36] quantitatively extracted the large-scale and mesoscale signals from geopotential height, temperature and wind fields using Barnes filter and then analyzed the interaction of different scales in Mediterranean cyclogenesis occurring in 1982.
However, many uncertainties exist particularly in terms of cyclogenesis, intensification potential and the prediction of both processes.
Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna had told the Birmingham Mail: "Storm Katie could be classed on the edge of 'explosive cyclogenesis,' which is termed a 'weather bomb.' It is deepening rapidly."
