Did you hear there’s a possible Bomb Cyclone in much of the lower 48 this week? If you follow the weather, ‘bomb cyclone’ is an arresting term for a very cold winter storm. We can let the meteorologists have this.

As always, I’m curious how these events look in our visualization. Does it come through?

I’d say it captured that pretty well. Mostly in the HRRR with a bit of GFS at the end.

Stay safe and stay warm.
