As our calm and mild weather pattern continues here in the Mid-Atlantic region the focus of our attention is on two parts of North America: 1) the tropics where Hurricane Sandy continues to intensify and churn northward and 2) the central US where cold air is plunging into the region from central Canada. The potential continues to exist for a major Mid-Atlantic and Northeast US weather event in the Monday/Tuesday time frame as these two features eventually interact with each other. This impending weather event could include hurricane-force winds, power outages, torrential rainfall along low-lying sections, significant higher elevation accumulating snows in inland locations like western Pennsylvania and West Virginia, and coastal flooding as high tides will be aided by Sunday’s full moon in addition to strong winds.
