WEATHER BLOG: Sandy’s Gone, But Still Affecting Us
Even though Sandy is spinning way off to our north, it’s responsible for our clouds and cool air. We only topped out at 52 degrees Friday. The average high is 62 degrees. We are going to remain below average right into next week. The one difference, we will see some sunshine return.
Clouds will mix with sunshine Saturday while we still have a breeze out of the northwest. Then, a weak front will pass south of us over the weekend. It will drag some clouds through, more to the south, and maybe even a couple of showers across the south. This front will head out to sea Monday, keeping us in the cool air.
Another front will move our way Tuesday night or Wednesday. This one’s going to be a different story. It will take a track across the country, then dig south along the Gulf Coast, before turning north and heading our way as a nor’easter. We are still days out, but there is the chance that this storm could mix with colder air to our west for rain and interior snow, along with gusty winds. If this storm does come together, it could be a big problem to so many in New Jersey and New York still expected to be cleaning up, and without any protective dunes along some of the beaches. Of course, we will be monitoring this closely and will keep you updated through the weekend.
