Sandy should make landfall in NJ in a couple hours. As she nears the rain and wind will get worse. Do not let your guard down just because it hasn't yet been too bad for you. Given the position of Sandy, those along the coast have been feeling her force. Us in Central and S MD are in for it as she cuts across land into PA.
Sandy is moving very fast now, but when she comes ashore that forward movement will slow. As projected, we should be feeling the tropical storm force winds (above 39 mph) from around 6:00pm until at least 8:00am and probably longer. This will last into through Tuesday until Sandy finally makes it into central PA.
Thus far I have recorded a wind gust of 26 mph with the average wind speed in the teens. The rain total for my house thus far is 3.62". Follow me on Twitter for more frequent updates: www.twitter.com/wxmanmd and my Weather Phone is updated: 443-470-9804.
