Manhattan is set to get 3 inches of snow starting around 5 or 6 a.m. Thursday, but parts of Queens, Brooklyn and Long Island should brace for at least double that, experts warned.

Laying it on rather thick too.
LMAO, who is buying this nonsense?
Maybe deblassio can pass a law that all snow storms must only drop an inch or less.
New York Post just wants to trigger flags with this title.
CLICK ME CLICK ME OH PLEASE CLICK ME I’M GOING OUT OF BUSINESS CLICK ME!!
Let the hyperbole begin!
Yes. Winter officially begins December 21 of every year in the Northern Hemisphere.
Up here in the northern section of NY State known as the Southern tier we deal with snow normally from the end of October to April every year. Temperatures below freezing and below zero are common place. It’s called the nature of things. Global warming is a sham.
The temperature and climate is controlled by what is called nature.
NYC could get slammed by bomb cyclone winter storm
Whats the problem? They have had bombstupid politicians for many years. Also bomb crime, bomb illegals, bomb taxes and a dozen other bombs. One more wont amount to anything.
Those back east have puny weakling snow storms. Out west snow storms kick their frozen butts. Even east coast trees look like skinny little twigs.☺
Then I pointed out to them that Mount Baker, Washington set a record for the Lower 48 states with 1,140 inches (that's not a misprint!) of snow in the late 1990s ... and the ski area there closes periodically because the snow piles up higher than the ski lifts.
I had a good friend in the ski patrol up there at the time. One evening they returned to base to find their cars buried completely in snow in the parking lot. Couldn't plow them out or snow-blow them out because they couldn't see where they were. They stayed the night in the lodge and dug them out with shovels the next day. And it was snowing.
They already used “snowmageddon” and “snowpacalypse” so they are left with terms like, “snow bomb” for their hyperbole.
Which way is that car going?
Lol. Janice Dean (Fox meteorologist) explained, earlier today, that its actually a meteorological term for this type system, that can bomb in pressure.
It does fit in nicely with the 24/7 news cycle mongers, though, doesnt it?
You know, I’ve been around for 51 years now, past 15 years of age. I’ve heard weather reports my whole life. So Janice, it may make sense to you, but for us folks who have had a brain actively listening to folks like you for over half a century, why not just stick with common English language.
Weather bombs? FAIL!
Not taking you to task here Jane.
No worries. I thought the same thing, when I heard her explaining it. She almost seemed a tad embarrassed by the term. :-) (Not the OMG ITS BOMBAGEDDON Weather Channel nonsense.)
