Sandy Comparison

Hurricane Sandy is going to lose it’s tropical features as it travels farther north. As it does the storm would be considered extatropical. The storm is going to be a historic one when it comes to how large it is, lowest pressure, snow amount (in West Virginia). The storm will bring rain amounts up to 10″ (see map below) with wind speeds near 80 mph.

There are a bunch of numbers thrown out on TV and on the web when it comes to the pressure and the wind. Some of you don’t have anything to compare it to here in the Midwest. Well here is something you can compare Sandy to. There was record setting storm on October 26-27, 2010 in the Midwest. There was a massive wind storm producing blizzard conditions, strong winds and severe weather. The lowest pressure in this storm was 955.2 mb. The pressure of Sandy at 11 am advisory, from the National Hurricane Center, was 951 mb. The lower the pressure the stronger the storm is.

Here is what Hurricane Sandy looks like on the satellite midday Sunday.

Click here to see the loop of the above image. It is a detailed loop so it takes a little longer to load but it is worth the wait.

Here is another comparison for you. How about the “The Storm of the Century” in 1993. The lowest pressure of this storm was 960 mb.

The map below shows the wind forecast for Monday evening as Sandy’s center of circulation reaches the coast. The strong winds extend as far east as Chicago. Here in Iowa our wind will NOT be strong at all.

12:20 PM Weather Update

Lots of wind out there blowing the snow showers sideways. The wind will diminish late tonight. There will be a few locations, along and north of Highway 20, where the road may be slick so please dry with caution this afternoon and tonight. Bursts of heavier snow will reduce visibility this afternoon and evening. The wind will be gusting from 40-50 mph this afternoon and evening. Any snow accumulation will be light…1″ or less.
