SciShow: Hurricane Sandy FAQ

Nicely done on the whole. Only one complaint: the middle latitude system Sandy collided with was not a “high pressure system” as the narrator suggested. I would call it a “trough” (sometimes even spelled “trof” by lazy meteorologists) a bulge in the jet stream bringing a cold air excursion equatorward. If anything it is more like a low-pressure system than a high. Otherwise nicely done.
