The Trend In This Developing Pattern

We hope you are having a great start to Thursday. We have made it to October 29th. Hurricane Sandy made landfall in the United States about 8 p.m. EDT Oct. 29, 2012 or three years ago today, striking near Atlantic City, N.J., with winds of 80 mph. This super-storm became part of the overall weather pattern that repeated that year every 50 to 54 days. In the 2012-2013 winter the LRC Cycle length was in that 50-54 day range.
