Creepy Hurricane Matthew skull photo.

If you thought stories of creepy clown sightings across the U.S. was weird this October, then here's something really spooky just in time for Halloween.  :o
A picture of Hurricane Matthew that looks like a skull.

Hurricane Matthew is a monster storm. Now it has a monster image to match.

A sinister image of Hurricane Matthew, resembling a human skull, has lit up the Internet. The creepy satellite photo was posted Tuesday by Weather Channel senior meteorologist Stu Ostro as the hurricane made landfall in Haiti.

The image shows the hurricane through an infrared camera lens. It's been tweaked to show the storm in apocalyptic colors that accentuate the hurricane's eye and make its teeth look like the comic book character Ghost Rider or the Grinch, some Twitter users suggested.

It's creepy, but in a nutshell, CNN meteorologist Judson Jones explains that "basically, scientists use color tables to identify the strongest part of the storm."

In the viral Twitter post, gray, black and red were chosen.
Paul Meyer, an atmospheric scientist at NASA's Earth Science Office, told CNN that the skull's "teeth" are cold convective clouds.

It is interesting.  I just hope the storm moves more out to sea than predicted.

 It is a good look for Halloween.  Storm and cloud structures often take
on wierd shapes..   :o
