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.

A slow moving upper low and a steamy air mass beneath it will keep drenching thunderstorms near the East Coast the next several days while areas farther west largely dry out. There's plenty of tropical stuff to watch as well.
The southern Plains will see less rain, maybe very little the next several days, hooray! Meanwhile, the Southeast will see wetter weather, hooray!
In the southern Plains the threat for flooding rain continues into the weekend before finally shifting east. The Southeast could use the rain but let's hope it's not too much of a good thing.
The weather pattern will remain favorable for wet but maybe not as wet weather in the Southern Plains while the Southeast gradually moistens up. Time to take a peek a the tropics again, too.
A minor change in the upper level pattern will give the southern Plains a brief respite from the heavy rains, which will shift to the east somewhat. Eventually, we'll moisten up much of the Southeast as a result.
Subtle changes over the next few days will lead to the worst of the rain and storms to shift east a little for a while. That's good because the southern Plains have had more than their fair share.
