A bomb cyclone, characterized by intense gale-force winds, heavy rains, and the potential for flooding, is advancing toward a significant portion of the East Coast. The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for over 32 million Americans, anticipating winds ranging between 40 and 70 mph along the coast, with the possibility of gusts reaching up to 85 mph.

The storm, originating from Florida and Georgia, is expected to bring substantial rainfall, with a stretch from North Carolina to Maine experiencing up to 4 inches. Early on Sunday, 35,000 homes and businesses in Florida and Georgia were already without power.

As the storm progresses, rivers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and a considerable portion of New England are at risk of flooding on Monday and Tuesday, according to AccuWeather.

The National Weather Service warns of persistent “dangerous marine conditions” extending into early next week, as winds and seas are anticipated to gradually subside.

New York City officials warned commuters to brace for disrupted travel conditions as a powerful storm was expected to batter the area with heavy winds and major flooding starting Sunday and lasting into Monday.

The National Weather Service said a low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico was moving toward the East Coast and could bring 2 to 3 inches of rainfall across New York City and northeastern New Jersey. Some areas could get as much as 4 inches of rain, the weather service said.

Downpours were also forecast for areas east of Interstate 95 in Washington and Baltimore, the weather service said, and flood watches were issued for those areas. The Allegheny Mountains could get more than 6 inches of snow, which could make travel difficult, forecasters said.
