This is a great high resolution satellite view of hurricane Sandy. Over the last 2 days its peak wind gusts were over 100 mph and the eye was quite clear.
But over today dry air from the southwest and strong upper level winds have sheared the storm and you can see the thunderstorms and high clouds have swept well to the northeast. Sandy will likely weaken but later in the weekend it will interact with the strong upper level wave and jet stream and reintensify as it is drawn into the coast late Monday and Tuesday.
Here is the latest track from the tropical prediction center
Stay with us and we will keep you informed about the local impacts late Monday and Tuesday
