Sandy makes landfall and is no longer tropical, but causing major damage

By: JohnnyParker , 11:26 AM GMT on October 30, 2012

Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 38 and it feels like 32. Highs will continue to range between 63 and 75 with lows between 36 and 50. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Sunday. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 38 and it feels like 34. Todays high is 62 and a low of 38 with winds out of the Northwest at 16mph. Wednesdays high is 66.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Hurricane Sandy has made landfall in New Jersey and is no longer a hurricane. Remains a major threat to the Northeast. Threats from Sandy will continue to 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, we now have Tropical Depression Seventeen-E. Winds are at 35mph with a pressure of 1006mbars. Movement is West-Northwest at 8mph. Is expected to become a tropical storm later today and is not a threat to land. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, showers and thunderstorms associated with a weak area of low pressure located about 400 miles South-Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico have decreased. Upper-level winds are expected to become less conducive for development within a day or so. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves slowly West-Northwestward.

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