That blue band to the west is why this storm is so gnarly. The band is a combination of cold storms that will collide with a hot-weather Hurricane Sandy, thus the name “Frankenstorm.” Not to mention the very high-tides due to tomorrow’s full moon. These elements are why everyone is freaking out.
The band was a normal storm creeping across the U.S. from the Pacific Coast. But along the way it picked up a blast of wintery arctic air that swooped down from Canada. Sandy is pushing a lot of water towards the coastline, causing mega-damage to many properties. The tide is already high, making it worse.
Once it mashes into Hurricane Sandy over the coast, there will be mega-damage to many many properties. Frankenstorm indeed!
