Sunday: Cloudy, Showers, Breezy to Windy

Sandy has weakened.  Here is the latest great satellite view. 


The latest track:


Notice landfall could be anywhere from Long Island to the Delmarva peninsula early to midday Tuesday. IMPORTANT:  Sandy may continue to weaken (see our latest blog with great video over the last 2 days) but the interaction of even a weak Sandy with a very strong wave in the jet stream, late Sunday, will generate what is known as an coast storm "bomb" with rapidly falling pressure and increasing winds and as the storm turns almost due west, and the Full Moon high tide, the impact on the shore areas, is likely to be severe.  Inland high winds, with leaves still on many trees, power outages likely along with flooding rains.  This will all begin to impact our region Monday into Tuesday.  We will be updating here around the clock and full reports on ABC7 and News Channel 8 and on our smart phone app too.  Stay safe, but prepare for a major storm Monday night-Tuesday
