Winter Storm Riley expected to undergo Bombogenesis

Winter Storm Riley is expected to hit the Northeast coast Thursday into Friday bringing with it hurricane-force winds, coastal flooding, and wet snow. The storm is expected to undergo bombogenesis, a term that describes a mid-latitude cyclone that rapidly intensifies. The atmospheric pressure in such a storm will drop at least 24 millibars within 24 hours. This can happen when a cold air mass collides with a warm air mass, such as air over ocean waters.

This transformation into an intense Nor'easter has the potential for serious damage from high winds, flooding, and freezing conditions. The full impact of the storm is expected on Friday.

ContactRelief is monitoring area. We expect to see power outages and other damage from this storm. Similar storms last year caused power outages in Maine for days. Our recommendation to suspend contact covers areas with current Hurricane Force Wind Warnings or Watches. We will issue additional recommendations for areas under High Wind Warnings if the wind is expected to intensify or if damage occurs.
