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.
Storm next week will bring many impacts which includes high winds, snow and heavy thunderstorms.
Light snow events through the weekend. Potential big storm next week prior to the holidays.
Confidence on the storm this weekend remains rather low.
The first storm brings snow across the northern Plains. Weekend storm could produce some heavy amounts but track differs with the models
Southern branch of the jet gets energized with storms this weekend and beyond.
Southern branch of the jet gets active with storms which means some snow but more rain.
