There will be a strong low moving up the coast on Friday Night, Saturday morning.  The storm will dump heavy rain fall across the area.  Minor Flooding is possible.  Expect high seas and waves.  As the storm moves up the coast, bombogenisus is expected to occur. Bombogenisus is the rapid intensification of a low pressure system.  The criteria to be considered a meteorological bomb is to drop 1 millibar of pressure every hour.  This means the winds in this storm will be very strong.  Expect cold, wet conditions on Saturday.
