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.

I told y'all the cold will be back and it's on the way. It's some really cold stuff, too. The front leading it in will cause a soaking rain for some as well as snow and ice for others.
Not much has changed since yesterday: look for a warmup followed by a soaking followed by a return to cold later next week and next weekend.
Like I said yesterday, it will warm up but eventually the cold will win again. The challenge is figuring out what the transition will be like and how fast it occurs next week and beyond.
A spell of quieter weather is underway but it will get busy again next week. During this quiet spell it will warm up gradually. That might feed thunderstorms when it gets stormy again.
It's really cold now with some snow on the ground in some areas. It will warm up some but more cold air is lurking.
OK, so the GFS was very wrong the other day. The storm moving through the Southeast through Wednesday will soak many, cause some bad storms and leave some snow and ice behind, too.
