    While the severity of the storm grabbing attention is still questionable, the storm would affect the Boston area spanning Sunday evening through Tuesday.

    The storm, be it Sandy, a hybrid, a nor'easter or a period of rain and wind would advance quickly up the coast and may then stall. Hence, the unusually long period of nasty weather forecast.

    There is a risk of damaging wind, torrential rain, coastal and flash flooding, power outages, downed trees and travel disruptions due to storm ranging from a moderate nor'easter to a hurricane.

    The storm would be nearby during the full moon, a time when astronomical tides are the greatest.

    More details will become available with this storm over the next few days. However, if you have extensive preparations to do as a precaution, waiting until early next week would be too late.
