They are both hauling ass to get out of town as of tomorrow, no such thing as 2 hurricanes "merging", they will hit each other like tops and bounce away from each other. Or the weaker will be sucked into the stronger.
Sounds like a merger to me ... LOL
Wasn't the idea of storms merging the basis for the movie "The Perfect Storm"? That is what it sounds like is being talked about here. Yeah, I know, Hollywood isn't reality.
If the smaller got sucked into the larger, wouldn't that be merging?
It's possible for hurricanes to merge. There's some disruption in the air flow as they collide, but the low pressures just continue the vortex and the winds smooth out again.
Here's an historical example, albeit not a very impressive one. Check out TS Karen, it was absorbed by Iris in 1995.
"Or the weaker will be sucked into the stronger."
Uh, in other words uh... merging?
In October of 87 two low pressure systems (essentially hurricanes) merged just before giving the mainland of Great Britain the worst storm they had had in 100 years.
