‘Bomb cyclone’ storm to bring ‘life-threatening’ cold to US, millions under alert

Posted by in category: climatology

Millions of Americans are under critical weather alerts as a major winter storm is set to bring “life-threatening” cold temperatures and powerful winds to large swaths of the nation — with the mercury expected to drop as low as minus 20 degrees across the Midwest and Great Lakes.

More than 80 million Americans — spanning from coast to coast — are under various forms of wind chill alerts, according to FOX Weather meteorologist Christopher Tate.

“We could see wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph,” he told The Post on Wednesday. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we see an occasional gust of 60 along the coast.”
