Sandy is now on shore and no longer considered a hurricane (the technicality I spoke of this morning). The winds around the center are about 85 mph and the path will take her into MD between Baltimore and York, PA. Therefore, in the next few hours the winds in Central MD will get close to 80s mph as the center moves west. There will be periods of no rain as the center passes overhead. This is not yet over. By tomorrow afternoon it should calm down.
I currently have recorded gusts in the 30s mph and rain over 5 inches at my house.
Just a word of caution: we will see a lull in the action soon as the center of circulation comes near us (the old eye). Don't think it is over since the back end will come around shifting the winds to be from the south and keeping wind gusts in the 30s mph with more rain. This will be over later Tuesday.
