Never seen the models show such power consistently this far north in a believable range. Hope the east coast people are prepared and take every wording seriously.

whole lot of reports of wind gusting well in to the 50's things getting worse SE fl winds reports well inland too not just on the coast.

wxman, I've been a member here for around 7 years now, and I have never seen you speak like this. I've never seen you this worried. And that worries me.

This even more worrisome than the post by wxman that I replied to. So I am not the only one......

wx, as long as I have seen you here, I've never heard you so concerned. My question to you and other mets, is if there is a possibility of freezing weather impacting the region after the storm passes, which would be doubly devastating. Once the power is out with a wind swath like this, we could see folks without heat for upwards of a month and right into the start of winter.


Any snow that falls will be well inland over the interior Appalachian areas of Pennsylvania and western VA. This would not be unusual for them. They can get snow and freezing weather in late September so it wouldn't be historic. And the overall jet flow after this moves out is forecast to be zonal so there should be a return to normal or above normal temps for any areas that get snow.
Having said that I would agree with wxman57 that this is surely looking like a really bad, and yes historic storm for the mid-Atlantic to northeast. It's the amount of coastal water damage, flooding damage and widespread wind damage that will be historic if the model forecasts are right.

I read a lot but don't post much here; love reading and learning. I, too, have never seen such a post from Wxman57. I'll be calling and emailing our relatives up and down the Eastern Seaboard, especially those on Long Island and in New England, to make sure they are prepping and taking this seriously. Thanks for all the good info y'all! And hope all in this storm's path stay safe.

Yeah..this isn't hype either..it's genuine concern for people further up the east coast. I live in Charleston SC but all my family is in southern NE, so I am very concerned. They seem to be downplaying in Rhode Island but people just need to be aware and prepared. That's how lives are saved.

Not much wind here... maybe 25mph though I am sure the stronger winds will spread north later tonight

Don't you remember the 1938 new england hurricane striking long island? That's historic. It killed over 680 people - directly.

Squalls seem to be getting stronger down here as well.

Guys whats the chances of the models being dead on right with this storm?

I have so much family living on the East coast especially in the Carolinas and in NYC... This is worrying.

This and all of the other posts coming in now show how the wind field is expanding. Boy is this going to be a rough storm and for so long. Wxman57 I have to chime in that your post was chilling but the models are converging towards just such an historic event. It reminds me of the superstorm of 1993 when all of the models converged on an historic event and they were right. This one looks like it will join that club of truly historic storms. I don't mind telling you that people here in the New york city area are starting to get worried. That, at least, makes me hopeful that people will take heed.

Let me add my own two pesos into the mix and tell you all that I can count on one hand the number of times I have seen wxman57 speaking of a weather event in such terms. And his voice joins a growing chorus of recognized national meteorologists who concur. I hope and pray that folks along the East Coast (and inland areas) take this serious and spend their weekend preparing for this event.

NWS just upgraded the forecast for winds drastically in Miami, and went back to TS conditions possible.

Wind has picked up here in northern palm beach county as well (I'm a little less than a mile from the coast as the crow flies). Hope that cyclonic loop that some of the models are forecasting in the NW Bahamas doesn't push Sandy too close to the SE FL coast.

I will be live posting from Norfolk Va during the event. I'm quite nervous about this one as I think it does have the chance to affect us directly.
