Worst storm in 100 years: East Coast waits in terror for Frankenstorm
Some Americans may have to think twice about going trick-or-treating this year. A massive storm is expected to hit the East Coast during the days leading up to Halloween, which meteorologists anticipate will cost at least $1 billion in damages.
The “Frankenstorm” may bring high winds, heavy rain, extreme tides and even snow to some states. The storm will evolve from a collision between Hurricane Sandy, which has already swept through Haiti and Cuba and is now heading north, and a winter storm coming from the west. Government forecasters say there is a 90 percent chance that the hurricane will make landfall on the East Coast.
The two weather systems are predicted to collide in New York or New Jersey Tuesday morning, bringing those states about 5 inches of rain and winds close to 40 mph. Forecasters say it could be the worst US storm in 100 years. Chuck Watso, director of research and development at Kinetic Analysis Corp., announced Thursday that it may cost more than $5 billion in damages.

why is Sandy being called frankenstorm? is it because it will be colliding with a cold front?

Because it is literally going to become a MONSTER when it hits that cold front.
What it is now is NOTHING compared to what it will become....so they say...but let's hope they get it wrong.

It has weakened and is not even a hurricane at the moment. It's a tropical storm, with winds barely at 70mph.

Yes, but they're expecting it to ramp back up to a hurricane before it hits, and all bets are off when it merges with the cold front.

"Waits in terror"?...ummm, no we are not.

Some Americans may have to think twice about going trick-or-treating this year. A massive storm is expected to hit the East Coast during the days leading up to Halloween, which meteorologists anticipate will cost at least $1 billion in damages.
The “Frankenstorm” may bring high winds, heavy rain, extreme tides and even snow to some states. The storm will evolve from a collision between Hurricane Sandy, which has already swept through Haiti and Cuba and is now heading north, and a winter storm coming from the west. Government forecasters say there is a 90 percent chance that the hurricane will make landfall on the East Coast.
The two weather systems are predicted to collide in New York or New Jersey Tuesday morning, bringing those states about 5 inches of rain and winds close to 40 mph. Forecasters say it could be the worst US storm in 100 years. Chuck Watso, director of research and development at Kinetic Analysis Corp., announced Thursday that it may cost more than $5 billion in damages.
“It’s pretty much the worst case scenario with the potential for historic coastal flooding, copious amounts of rain, and damaging winds,” Jason Samenow of the Capital Weather Gang wrote in the Washington Post.
“It’s definitely something that everyone should be watching,” Nelson Vaz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, told the Wall Street Journal. “A storm that maintains its strength, coming in to central New Jersey would focus the storm surge in the New York harbor area.”
Forecasters have compared the predicted weather system to the 1991 Perfect Storm, also known as the Halloween Nor’easter, which had winds blowing at 75 mph and cost more than $200 million in damages. This year’s storm will fall during a full moon, which will cause the tides to rise 20 percent higher than normal even without the storm surge.
Utility companies are preparing for the worst. In the Washington area, Pepco is gathering help from power companies in other parts of the US to gain additional assistance in the case of fallen power lines or power outages. Other companies are canceling their employees’ days off to have them available for help.
Baltimore Gas and Electric spokesman Robert Gould told the Post that he expects to see “a couple hundred thousand outages or more” when the Frankenstorm makes its appearance.
Amtrak has expressed concern that fallen trees and debris could make it difficult for trains to keep running between Washington and Boston.
As power companies, airports, rail lines and supermarkets are undergoing emergency preparations for a potentially record-breaking storm, residents of the Northeast may have to forego their Halloween plans.
“It’s looking like a very serious storm that could be historic,” Jeff Masters, meteorology director of the forecasting service Weather Underground, told the Associated Press. “Mother Nature is not saying, ‘Trick or treat.’ It’s just going to give tricks.”

BS. Halloween never has been Christian, let alone Catholic.
It is an old pagan custom which made it into modern society somehow. And then it was again, in its modern form, imported into Europe from the US just about 10 or 15 years ago.

Actually, Sandy is going to merge with a North Easterly AND a cold low from Canada.

Three systems into One Monster.

Pressure gradient, the difference from the eye to the outer edge of the rain bands, is what makes the hurricane spin. Greater difference of pressure makes a faster/stronger hurricane.

The pressure gradient is expected to be very strong. As the North Easter front has a large low pressure area. This low pressure is currently being assimilated by the hurricane.

Sort of like having exhaust headers for a hurricane.

Most of the time it is the warmer waters that powers the pressure gradient. Which is why people believe hurricanes require warm water. FALSE, hurricanes do not require warm water though it does help A LOT.

Hurricanes require a pressure difference to thrive.

Sandy is going to have a tremendous pressure difference.

Then dump all of this tropical moisture into a cold front. That cold air will condense all that moisture into rain. Heavy rain, not normal rain.

Wilma turned into a CAT5 in 16 hours from a TS. If the pressure gradient is strong enough, which it looks to be soon, Sandy will spin up into a CAT-5.



MARK MY WORDS.....SANDY WILL TURN INTO A CAT-5
Do your absolute best and the rest is fate.

 Quoting: --Voltaic--

Are you sure ?
I'd say it is the other way round. The hurrican's spin creates the pressure difference. The spin itself is powered by opposing forces at the rim. That's how you get anything to spin on its axis, don't you ?

Which means two winds blowing in opposite directions could potentially form a hurricans between them.
