The fog and mist will lift out slowly during the day with some sunshine yesterday. Low clouds and drizzle will develop again late tonight.

It still appears the greatest impact from Sandy will be on Monday and Tuesday. Strong winds and torrential rain are the greatest risks for our area. The mid-Atlantic and Northeast U.S. coastline will have the worst of it. While computer models are trending towards a mid-Atlantic landfall, this is not certain. Because Sandy's windfield is widening and  it's forward motion will be slowing upon transition to post-tropical status, a huge area will be impacted for an extended period of time. Flooding and wind damage will be likely. It's Friday morning, more details will be ironed out over the next 48 hours. But prepare and scour this website for the latest advisories, warnings and updates. And keep up to date on abc 7, News Channel 8 and WTOP Radio.
