The comments yesterday on storm preparation ideas from the "seasoned pros" were excellent. Be sure to look back at yesterday's blog to see them.
As for Sandy itself, we expect to see some wild times tomorrow night into Tuesday with a lot of folks roughing it for a while afterwards.

The desiccated areas of the Southeast will remain bone-dry for at least another week. Limited moisture will affect parts of Florida and the mid-Atlantic. A decent plume of moisture looks to affect parts of Texas and Oklahoma starting Monday.
A front will move through the South over the rest of the week but it won't have much moisture to work with. It will stay warm in most places, almost summery in some areas. There's still some things to talk about in the tropics, too, particularly in the East Pacific, where Seymour is a major hurricane.
Most of the South looks tranquil and warm again for the next few days, though cooler air will keep trying to muscle in near the East Coast. A cold front will move in starting at midweek to produce limited rain chances for some. There are still some things to keep an eye on in the tropics, including a new tropical storm in the East Pacific.
Cooler and drier air has settled in for the weekend. Next week, it warms up with limited moisture return ahead of the next front moving in. There are two items of interest in the tropics currently.
The warm to hot and dry weather continues until midweek, then a front moves through later in the workweek followed by cooler and more comfortable air. We also still have a couple of tropical concerns, too, one close to home.
While not totally quiet, the weather across the south looks mostly dry and warm, even summery, through the middle of next week. Starting around Wednesday and going through the end of next week, it looks much more stormy.
