NYC, Long Island brace for winter storm

National Weather Service briefing for New York City on Jan. 3 at 5 a.m

Winter Storm Grayson has already started to hit the southeastern coast, with flurries of snow in Tallahassee, Florida.

Behind the storm, we are expecting the coldest air of the season for the Northeast.

Bombogenesis, or a storm bombing out, means the surface pressure of the storm will drop 24 millibars in 24 hours, or at the rate of 1 millibar per hour.

The storm is also giving forecasters a chance to play with other data-generating instruments, including the new GOES-16 satellite that just settled into position over the Eastern U.S.

"It will be massive", National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Maue warned on Twitter Tuesday.

Typical pressure rests around 1010 millibars, and most major rain and snow storms in the United States land around 995 or 990, the Washington Post reports.

ABC NewsThe storm system will begin to strengthen late Wednesday and move up the East Coast, spreading snow into the eastern mid-Atlantic states and southern New Jersey.

How much the storm affects the coast is contingent on a number of factors, most notably how far out to sea it tracks.

Also like something out of "The Day After Tomorrow", this polar vortex looks remarkably similar to the fictional one that ushered in a new Ice Age.

RARE SIGHT: it's snowing in Tallahassee FL for the 1st time in 28 years.

"Winter storm watches and warnings have been issued as far south as parts of north Florida, coastal Georgia, and the low country of SC, including the cities of Savannah, Ga. @NWSTallahassee measured 0.1" of snow/sleet on their roof @floridastate at 8:30 AM.

CNN meteorologist Chad Myers warned that every time "you see pink in Florida" you know things are going to be bad.

Weather Man says: "Yes, there's snow in them thar hills".

As Jason Samenow of The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang reports, "A monster storm will hammer coastal locations from Georgia to ME with ice and snow".
