Over the next couple of days, I will be writing about Hurricane Sandy and the impacts that will be felt along the entire Eastern Seaboard this weekend and through next week.
The current forecast track takes Sandy’s center into Delaware, but as the storm is still over 36 hours away from landfall, the exact location of landfall remains uncertain. Anywhere between extreme eastern Virginia and the island of Manhattan. Either way, no matter where this system makes landfall, it will be a very large and expansive Hurricane with widespread impacts being felt over much of the Mid-Atlantic and New England states.
With Sandy having churned up waters over the open Atlantic for the past week, very high waves, storm surge, and flooding will be a serious concern before, during, and after landfall. Comparisons are being made to the historic Superstorm of March 1993. The comparisons are certainly warranted, but this storm will not produce the crippling snowfall that the Superstorm did. I will have more on Hurricane Sandy tomorrow.
