BLOG: What is a weather "Bomb" ?

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - If you like good information packed into a small article, this one is for you.  Most of you have heard the weather term 'Bomb' or 'Bombogenesis' (not really one of my favorites if I'm being honest).  But what does that mean when a storm Bombs?  Is that just a slang term we use, or does it have some scientific basis.  It actually is based on how rapidly a storm strengthens, or deepens.  The deepening just refers to the central pressure of the storm falling. 

Before I give it all away, have a look at this because you can see a nice video clip of a major storm system winding up and bombing off the eastern seaboard and heading into the North Atlantic!
