Bomb Cyclone | Daily Current Affairs 2023

A bomb cyclone is a large, intense mid-latitude storm that has low pressure at its center, weather fronts and an array of associated weather, from blizzards to severe thunderstorms to heavy precipitation.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Bomb cyclones put forecasters on high alert, because they can produce significant harmful impacts.
Reasons for the Formation:
๐Ÿ‘‰ This can happen when a cold air mass collides with a warm air mass, such as air over warm ocean waters. The formation of this rapidly strengthening weather system is a process called bombogenesis.
๐Ÿ‘‰ It occurs when a midlatitude cyclone rapidly intensifies, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours. A millibar measures atmospheric pressure.
๐Ÿ‘‰How does a Bomb Cyclone differ from a Hurricane?
 Hurricanes tend to form in tropical areas and are powered by warm seas. For this reason, theyโ€™re most common in summer or early fall, when seawater is warmest.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Bomb cyclones generally occur during colder months because cyclones occur due to cold and warm air meeting. During the summer, thereโ€™s generally not
much cold air across the atmosphere; this means a bomb cyclone is much less likely to occur.
Hurricanes form in tropical waters, while bomb cyclones form over the northwestern Atlantic, northwestern Pacific and sometimes the Mediterranean Sea.
