So how did forecasters do with Hurricane Sandy?

There were complaints that meteorologists were over-hyping the threat, that Sandy wouldn’t be that bad.

Nobody’s saying that any more.

Sandy is blamed for more than 60 deaths in the U.S. and the damage will be measured in the billions. Coastal cities are burning, and for some life will never be the same.

As clean-up and recovery begins, scientists are taking a look back at how closely reality matched the forecasts. According to one science blogger, the forecasters nailed it.
