Weather patterns are coming together for a very nasty storm over the Northeast early next week! The storm could end up being historic! Follow along with the maps below.
The 1st map shows the storm with incredibly low pressure, packing strong winds, heavy rain, and on the west side possibly heavy snow. Notice the potential location of Sandy near Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, or New York early next week - late Monday/early Tuesday. If you have travel plans to the Northeast, get ready to closely monitor Sandy's path (last map below)
The 2nd map shows the EURO model snowfall output by the end of the storm. This may or may not happen, but this model shows potentially feet of snowfall over West Virginia, and even some snow over Eastern Kentucky. Again, much will change in the path and intensity of this storm...but, wow! Sandy really becomes a hybrid with tropical and snowstorm characteristics as it collides with the cold front that moves through our area Friday.
The 3rd map shows the cold conditions on the way for our area. Sandy will impact our weather by strengthening and continuing the pull of colder weathe from Canada. Our area should stay mainly dry being far enough west, but chilly. This map show maximum temperatures in the 40s for Halloween Wednesday!
The last map is the track of Hurricane Sandy.
