Six reasons why Hurricane Sandy scares me

At the risk of being accused of over-hyping or spreading panic, I wanted to point out five reasons that I, as an experienced meteorologist, am very concerned about Hurricane Sandy’s impact in New England and the Mid-Atlantic. I could have used concerned in the title of the article, but I have a liking for alliteration. Rather than lay it all out in the eloquent prose of someone who has had 15 hours sleep since Wednesday morning, I figured I would cut a late-night video for your viewing pleasure. I’m not seen in the video, because, frankly, I probably look like hell.

Here are the reasons:

  • Size matters
  • Computer model consistency
  • Track, track, track
  • No analog
  • Full Hunter’s moon
  • Silly semantics
