By now, you may have heard what about a 'bomb' off the Pacific NW coast. What the heck is that? Well, in weather lingo, a 'bomb' is used to describe a rapidly deepening storm, where the storm's pressure drops 24+ mb (millibars) within a 24 hour period. #pdxtst #orwx #wawx

@NWSPortland I would love to know more weather lingo, why is pressure significant and what does it mean when the pressure drops? Thanks!
