We're enjoying a nice bout of Indian Summer here in Ohio with temperatures gradually warming every day since Sunday the 21st. Yesterday we had our first 80° day since September 17th! This week's unusal warmth will be met with a rude awakening tomorrow when a strong cold front pushes through the area and drops temps back below normal for a while.
Of greater concern to our long term outlook is Hurricane Sandy in the Bahamas right now. This system has a very uncertain future for an East Coast landfall, ranging from the Carolina's to Nova Scotia.
Our weather will be impacted by Sandy, it's really just a matter of whether it's a cloud deck or heavy rains. There's no way to know right now, as models diverge greatly past Day 3.
Here's how uncertain Sandy's path will be:
The one model that has Sandy's center coming straight through Central Ohio is the outlier and the worst case scenario for us.
There are many factors that come in to play with this system that I'll go in to detail about in the coming days.
