The storm strengthened at a fast enough pace into Thursday to be classified as a bomb cyclone. For a storm to meet bomb cyclone criteria, the barometric pressure has to fall at least 24 millibars, or 0.71 of an inch of Mercury, in 24 hours.

On Wednesday, AccuWeather meteorologist Jesse Ferrell predicated that this storm may allow new pressure records to fall.

Indeed, several preliminary low pressure record were broken. Providence, Rhode Island, set a new monthly record reaching 976.3 mb at 3:54 a.m. Thursday.

Preliminary October records were also set in Boston and Concord, New Hampshire. Boston reached 975.3 mb, surpassing the previous record of 982.4, while in Concord, the pressure dipped to 973.1, breaking the old record of 980.4. The National Weather Service will ultimately determine the validity of these records.

"NOAA lists records which are over 980 mb for stations in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts New Hampshire, and southern Maine." Ferrell said on Wednesday.
