‘Frankenstorm’: Could Be the Next Stormagedon
The storm that was threatening 60 million Americans in the eastern third of the nation in just a couple of days with high winds, drenching rains, extreme tides, flooding, and snow is much more than just an ordinary weather system. It's out of control and an unprecedented monster. It all began as an ordinary late summer hurricane from the tropics, moving north up the East Coast. As it brought in high pressure ridge air centered around Greenland, the hurricane's normal out-to-sea path was steered west toward land. In addition to a wintry cold front moving in from the west that pulls the other storm inland mixing in a blast of Arctic air from the north for one big collision.
