The Weather Channel is calling this Winter Storm Stella. If we have sustained winds over 35 MPH, It's a blizzard. If the barometric pressure drop over 24 millibars in 24 hours, it's considered a BOMBOGENESIS!! The last bombogenesis we had was in 2103 and over 31" of snow fell on CT in my neck of the woods.
