SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The National Weather Service is warning that the Spokane region might get hit by what some people call a weather bomb this weekend.

Forecasters say that on Sunday the region might see a clash between moist Pacific air and cold polar air.

The Spokesman-Review says that could trigger what meteorologists call "bomb cyclogenesis."

The term describes a fast drop in air pressure that will result in strong winds, rain and snow, all just ahead of the season's first hard freeze.

Wind gusts on Sunday could potentially reach 45 to 50 mph.
