Sandy is going to put a hurting on a large part of the U. S. over the next several days. If you're fortunate enough to be only brushed or completely missed by the storm, consider yourself fortunate. For what it's worth, across the South the weather looks very quiet for several days once Sandy gets out of the way.

Rain is on the way through Saturday for the Carolinas and Georgia, where it's not wanted. Aside from that, the next several days look quiet down south. The tropics are quiet for now.
First, a brief bit about the trouble spots for the next few days, then it's time for me to open up to you about something personal.
West Texas, areas toward the East Coast and parts of Florida see the most widespread rains the next few days while it stays mostly dry elsewhere through this weekend.
Extreme rain through this weekend will cause flooding in the Carolinas; it's not really nice anywhere near the East Coast. Fortunately, it's nice elsewhere for now. The tropics remain active.
While it looks likely at this point that Joaquin goes out to sea, we still have a setup for parts of the Southeast to see some extreme rainfall.
Several separate storm systems will affect the South over the next several day with most of the action in the Southeast.
