Was Sandy the Strongest??
Sandy was one of the most inter sting weather phenomena that I have ever seen. This was a tropical based system to start as it marched over Jamaica, then Cuba, then the Bahamas, then out into the open waters of the Atlantic where it chugged along... Then a remarkable transformation took place.. The things that make it a tropical system (light winds aloft, a total warm core) started to change into a non tropical based system with powerful systems of jet streams and cold air coming in from Canada. I started talking about "Superstorm Sandy" last Tuesday and how I thought it might become the "Superstorm" that it did. For those of you who did not read that one, please check it out:
