Default Hurricane + Snowstorm = Frankenstorm!

Frankenstorm!


Quote:
An unusual nasty mix of a hurricane and a winter storm that forecasters are now calling "Frankenstorm" is likely to blast most of the East Coast next week, focusing the worst of its weather mayhem around New York City and New Jersey.

U.S. government forecasters on Thursday upped the odds of a major weather mess, now saying there's a 90 percent chance that the East will get steady gale-force winds, heavy rain, flooding and maybe snow starting Sunday and stretching past Halloween on Wednesday.

Meteorologists say it is likely to cause $1 billion in damages.

The storm is a mix of Hurricane Sandy, now in the Caribbean as a Category 2 storm, as well as an early winter storm in the West and a blast of arctic air from the North. They're predicted to collide and park over the country's most populous coastal corridor and reach as far inland as Ohio.

The West coast gets earthquakes, forest fires, mudslides, etc.

There are saying this storm is going to be massive. The alerts go from North Carolina to Massachusetts.
It's one of those storms like Katrina where the winds aren't crazy high, but the storm itself covers a giant area.

So the densest part of the country is about to get a massive storm a week before the election.

Quote:
“It really could be an extremely significant, historic storm,” said Brian McNoldy, a senior research associate at the University of Miami, explaining that conditions are similar to those that created the famous “perfect storm” of 1991....
The chain of events that would make Hurricane Sandy develop into a grave threat to the coast involves a storm system known as a midlatitude trough that is moving across the country from the west. If the systems meet up, as many computer models predict, the storm over land could draw the hurricane in.

“Now you’ve got this giant storm complex with a lot of energy,” Mr. Feltgen said. The combined systems could produce high winds, heavy rains and storm surges that would cause extensive damage.

Could be lot of power outages coming. The flooding in upstate NY and Vermont from Irene was massive.

It looks like NYC is going to get rain. Tons and tons of rain. I should be fine, i'm on top of a huge hill, but the commute next week is going to be horrific.

What commute? If it's as bad as they say, they'll shut down mass transit Tuesday and Wednesday at least.
