US East Coast Gripped by Brutal Cold After Blizzard

Six dead as severe winter storm hits US East Coast

Six deaths were reported in Wisconsin, four in Texas, three in North Carolina, and one each in Michigan, Missouri and North Dakota.

The usage appeared in a meteorological paper in 1980, and had been noted in prior decades among a handful of scientists to describe an extraordinary drop in atmospheric pressure, defined as at least 24 millibars in 24 hours, which requires a very dynamic- polar air collided with a subtropical stream, usually over the warm water of the Gulf Stream off the mid-Atlantic coast. The cold weather disrupted flight services and caused power outages in tens of thousands of homes in the US.

In some of those places, exposed skin could freeze within 30 minutes, said meteorologist Dan Petersen of the National Weather Service's Maryland-based Weather Prediction Center.

US meteorologists called the winter storm in the week a "bomb cyclone" for its rapid and rare drop in atmospheric pressure. By mid-morning, flights at nearby airports, such as Boston Logan (BOS) and New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK), were slowly returning to normal, but with plenty of cancellations and delays still in effect.

Monday is expected to be the first day above freezing since last month.
