Monster storm to blast East Coast before polar vortex uncorks tremendous cold late this week!!!!!
Unforgiving cold has punished the eastern third of the United States for the past 10 days. But the most severe winter weather will assault the area late this week.
First, a very large and powerful storm will hammer coastal locations from Georgia to Maine with ice and snow. By Thursday, the exploding storm will, in many ways, resemble a winter hurricane, battering easternmost New England with potentially damaging winds in addition to blinding snow.
Forecasters are expecting the storm to become a so-called “bomb cyclone” because its pressure is predicted to fall so fast, an indicator of explosive strengthening. The storm could rank as the most intense over the waters east of New England in decades at this time of year.
@RyanMaue: All day Thursday meteorologists are going to be glued to the new GOES-East satellite watching a truly amazing extratopical “bomb” cyclone off New England coast. It will be massive — fill up entire Western Atlantic off U.S. East Coast. Pressure as low as Sandy & hurricane winds
The responsible storm is forecast to begin taking shape off the coast of Florida Wednesday, unloading hazardous snow and ice in highly unusual locations not accustomed to such weather. The National Weather Service has already posted winter storm watches from Lake City, Fla. to Norfolk
It is then expected to explosively intensify, buffeting the Mid-Atlantic beaches and eastern New England, where winter storm watches have also been issued.

Storm Dylan was hampering New Year preparations in parts of the country on Sunday amid warnings of more to come.
And Government forecasters are not ruling out another named storm – Eleanor – over the coming days.
Nowhere will escape the fury of the weather as 70mph gales clash with high tides hurling huge waves over defences.
Torrential downpours on saturated ground have prompted more than 70 Environment Agency flood alerts and four more serious flood warnings.
The Met Office warned to expect a “very unsettled week” with strong winds and rain targeting all parts of the country.
“This storm developing off the Southeast coast will meet the meteorological criteria of a “bomb” as it rapidly intensifies.”
