Hurricane Sandy contest

It’s time to take a risk on Hurricane Sandy. I’ve opened the Sandy forecast contest. Forecasts are due at 8 PM EDT on Friday (27 October at 00Z).

Some rule clarifications:

  • If the storm takes on extratropical characteristics, it still counts so long as the National Hurricane Center is tracking it at landfall.
  • Landfall is defined as the first hit of the mainland, regardless of country. Barrier islands, etc, do not count.

  2. Barrier Islands don’t count?

    I’m seen as a second class citizen because I live on one of the most beautiful islands in the United States? 😎

    Emerald Isle, NC checking in. It’s not going to hit us.

    Good luck to NYC.
