The wild times previously predicted are coming to pass. Sandy's center was about 20 miles northeast of Wildwood, NJ as I was recording this, perhaps 10 miles offshore from Sea Isle City. Enjoy that snow along the spine of the Appalachians the next 24-48 hours. One concern, it might be a little winder than we think across parts of the Southeast. Also, the next storm to deal with should reach the southern Plains this weekend.

Two separate storms will affect the South through Monday then there is a potential big storm to deal with right before Christmas.
The weather pattern is turning to a wetter and stormier one. Eventually, it will get colder, too, but not for another week or so.
The situation is complicated and there is uncertainty but it look as though some good rain and even some snow late this week and this weekend for much of the South.
A storm moving into Texas and Oklahoma tomorrow will cause thunderstorms and some may be severe. There is a slight concern for severe weather Tuesday in the lower Mississippi Valley, too.
While we remain in a relatively tranquil setup, we will have one storm system to deal with starting Sunday and another next week.
Storms have consequences beyond their direct impacts. The storm up north this week will direct chilly air into the South and lock it in place for most of the week.
