The North East braces for 'life or death' Winter Storm Riley: 'Bombogenesis' is set to batter the coast with dangerous floods, 80mph winds, heavy rain and up to three inches of SNOW

The Northeast is bracing for a 'bombogenesis' that experts say will bring violent 80mph wind, torrential downpour, snow and heavy flooding, resembling the harshness of January's 'bomb cyclone'.

Weather experts said Thursday that Winter Storm Riley will undergo 'bombogenesis', caused by a rapid drop in atmospheric pressure of at least 24 millibars in a period of 24 hours or less.

The drop in atmospheric pressure will force the storm to form into an intense nor'easter into Friday.

A sudden pressure plummet on Friday is expected to hit the Atlantic coast leading into Saturday.

'Please take this storm seriously,' the National Weather Service in Boston said. 'For those living along the coast, this is a LIFE & DEATH situation.'
