Quiet/cold weather over the next few days, Sandy headed toward the Northeast

By: JohnnyParker , 12:39 PM GMT on October 27, 2012

Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 46 and it feels like 40. Highs will continue to range between 60 and 75 with lows between 34 and 49. No rain over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 46 and it feels like 40. Todays high is 62 with a low of 38. Sundays high is 60.

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 960mbars. Movement is North-Northeast at 10mph.Tropical Storm Watch is up for a little part of Florida/Georgia Border, little part of South Carolina, and Bermuda. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for a little portion of the East Coast of Florida, Northern Bahamas, upper coast of South Carolina, 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, a weak area of low pressure located about 650 miles South-Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Development of this system is expected to be slow to occur as it moves to the West-Northwestward at 10 to 15mph. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Hope yall are having a great Saturday and I'll have another post tomorrow.

Hi Johnny, well it looks like we are really going to get "clobbered" here where I am. Stamford CT. in SW CT. A full 24 hour period of 50-70mph winds, and 5-10 inches of rain. I am very worried about a huge oak tree that has it's base only 20 feet from the East side of my house, it's trunk is 3 feet wide at it's base and is about 6-70-feet tall. Many of it's branches hang over the East side of my house We expect most of the winds to come in from the East to ESE, so this is not a good proposition. I'm sure I'll lose power, I'll let you know what happens.
