...wasn't a hurricane at landfall. The National Hurricane Center report on Sandy is out:www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/AL182012_Sandy.pdfSandy weakened somewhat and then made landfall as a post-tropical cyclone near Brigantine, New Jersey with 70-kt maximum sustained winds. Because of its tremendous size, however, Sandy drove a catastrophic storm surge into the New Jersey and New York coastlines.The report mentions a couple of possible changes:...the NWS is exploring two proposals that, if adopted, would result in some changes to NWS products and warnings. The first proposal originates from the unique situation posed by Hurricane Sandy; it would give the NHC the option to continue issuing formal advisories on post-tropical cyclones as long as those systems pose a significant threat to life and property, and it would give the NWS the option to keep hurricane and tropical storm watches and warnings in place for those systems.DB2
