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.
It's going to be a stormy period across the country, but the models seem to differ on the outcome.
The storm that is coming into the Plains will produce a wide range of weather including snow, ice and flooding rains.
The holiday time will be stormy in the Plains and Front Range of the Rockies. Travel will be impacted by the weather.
A swath of moderate to heavy snow to move from the Midwest through the Great Lakes.
A storm will streak out of the Rockies into the Great Lakes producing a swath of a snow along its path.
