A drop in pressure in a system equals strengthening of the system.

The National Weather Service tweeted Wednesday that snow, ice, strong winds, and flooding in coastal areas will plague much of the East Coast, spanning from Florida all the way to New England.

All day Thursday meteorologists are going to be glued to the new GOES-East satellite watching a truly fantastic extratopical "bomb" cyclone off New England coast.

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.

Further south, the storm's impact will still be substantial.

"Travel will be unsafe and almost impossible, including during the morning commute on Wednesday", the service said in an advisory for northeastern Florida. Winter Storm Warnings have been issued across the Florida Big Bend and south central Georgia areas.

Most of the cancellations were in New Jersey, Boston and NY, which are seeing snowfall rates of up to 3 inches (7.62 centimeters) an hour and wind gusts up to 80 miles (128 kilometers) per hour.

Even year-round golf paradise Myrtle Beach in northeastern SC wasn't spared, with the overnight temperature dropping to -7 C on Tuesday just before the start of a rare winter storm that was expected to dump up to eight centimetres of snow on the region.

The New York City Department of Education said public schools would be closed Thursday and most likely Friday due to the severe weather.
