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.
Erika will track into the Bahamas and may intensify early next week. Track could bring it close to the U.S.
Erika's path and intensity over the next five days is the concern of the day.
We continue to watch the tropics as now we have a new storm.
