Sandy Could Threaten East Coast...

NHC indicates that Tropical Storm Sandy will become a hurricane as it sits down over the warm waters of the Caribbean.  Their forecast track brings it over Jamaica and Cuba across the Bahamas before curving her out to sea.  However, the ECMWF model brings it much closer to Florida & eventually up towards Long Island &/or New England by late this weekend.  The upper storm that is drenching the West Coast tonight is forecasted to race across the country and possibly turn Sandy back towards the east coast as a major Nor'easter type system.  If you have travel plans for the East Coast from Florida to Boston during the next 4-7 days, pay attention to the latest on Sandy.   Oh, by the way, we have TD 19 that could become Tony but its so far out in the Atlantic that only ships need to beware as he heads to the North.  We're running out of names again !

After a beautiful October weekend, look for little change until the next cold front arrives late Friday.  Highs will stay in the 80s but fall into the 40s & 50s at night bringing back sweaters & jackets for the weekend. Our next rain chance will be a few showers with the front.
