WEATHER BLOG: Tracking Sandy
Based on model trends our track is adjusted more to the south and west with landfall over southern N.J. or Del. Monday night or Tuesday morning. Regardless of the details of track and landfall, this will be a long-lived and devastating storm for a very large area. Widespread property damage along with prolonged power outages can be expected, not to mention flooding.
Even though landfall may not occur until Monday night or Tuesday morning, a large area of damaging to destructive wind and heavy rain may come in across the area well ahead of the center with the wind really cranking up as early as Sunday night and Monday morning. At the shore, flooding from storm surge and massive waves crashing onto the beaches will also occur.
