This is an excerpt from NASA video showing the transition Hurricane Sandy to a "Frankenstorm" hybrid nor'easter and tropical cyclone. Particularly notable is the sharp westerly move the storm made as it encountered a "blocking high" west of Greenland.
This animation of satellite imagery shows the life of Hurricane Sandy from its development in the Caribbean Sea on Oct. 21, through its track up the U.S. East coast and landfall. The animation continues through Oct. 31 when Sandy had weakened to a remnant low pressure area. Credit: NASA GOES Project
