N: 1. Extratropical storm development is referred to as cyclogenesis. Rapid extratropical cyclone development, called explosive cyclogenesis, is often associated with major winter storms and occurs when surface pressure falls by more than about 24 millibars per day.
2. A weather bomb (not a “perfect meteorological term”), also known as explosive cyclogenesis, strictly refers to a rapidly deepening extratropical cyclonic low-pressure area.
3. Cultural Interrelation: Also called “perfect storm”, like the movie The Perfect Storm (2000) directed by Wolfgang Petersen, based on a non-fiction book titled The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Man Against the Sea (1997) and written by Sebastian Junger.
