The end game of Sandy is going to be fun. I am sticking to my guns that it is out and around for Sandy and that another storm will brew along the coast due to the very low NAO. In fact, latest NAO shows a value by the 31st of -2.5 which is very low and means that a big storm should be along the coast.
Now while I am sticking to my guns of out and around with secondary development, the other solution is Sandy will come right into New Jersey or New England, although the models remain inconclusive on the track. If Sandy does come right into that area, it will be a major problem in regards to high winds, heavy rains and tidal flooding.

The band of snow and ice that develops this weekend will be bad in Kansas but more of a nuisance through the Ohio Valley.
As milder weather moves north, it will mean snow will hit the Great Lakes and Northeast today into tonight. California will get more heavy rain.
