Let's summarize just a few of the scientific impossibilities in the movie: The superstorm sucks vast quantities of frigid upper atmospheric air down to the surface, flash freezing any living thing caught outside. However, any graduate of a high school physics course could tell you that the air would warm on its descent in response to the requirements of the Ideal Gas Law, and would never be able to flash freeze anything.
One scientist in the movie does remember his high school physics and asks, "But wouldn't the air warm as it descends?
If you were on my thesis committee, I'd kick you off. Clusters of thunderstorms cannot merge together to form a continent-scale blizzard with a calm eye over land. Huge storms with calm eyes can only happen over the oceans. These storms are called hurricanes, and require that the core of the storm be over warm ocean waters in order to utilize the powerful latent heat energy that water vapor gives up when it condenses into rain.
And the laws of physics do not allow these type of storms to create blizzard conditions, only heavy rain. A foot high storm surge whipped up by the intense winds of the superstorm smashes through Manhattan. There's a little problem here--the winds needed to create a storm surge of this magnitude are probably at least twice the speed of sound mph , yet there is little apparent wind on the ocean's surface as the wave smashes ashore. The superstorm is shown in many scenes rotating clockwise, and in other scenes counter-clockwise.
