Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Hurricane Sandy has weakened some, but is still a major threat to the Northeast. Winds are at 75mph with a pressure of 951mbars. Movement is Northeast at 10mph. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Bermuda and the North Carolina coast. Sandy is expected to head Northward toward the East Coast. Main threats from Sandy will be high waves, rough seas, beach erosion, significant coastal flooding, rip currents, heavy rainfall greater than 5 inches, inland flooding, widespread damaging winds, and heavy snowfall for the higher elevations. In the Eastern Pacific, showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure located about 500 miles Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico have changed little in organization. Although upper-level winds are only marginally conducive, some gradual development of this low is possible during the next couple of days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward or Northwestward at 10-15mph.
Hope yall are having a great Sunday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
