Latest Forecast Brings Sandy Closer to Shore Area

Storm predicted to be off N.J. coast Tuesday morning

The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center on Thursday predicts a weakened – but still potent – Hurricane Sandy directly off the Jersey Shore by Tuesday morning.

The 11 a.m. update from the Miami-based agency shows Sandy – a post-tropical cyclone by the time it reaches New Jersey – making a sharp turn to the northwest Monday morning, with the storm sitting just offshore by Tuesday at 8 a.m. The wider predicted track of the storm shows it making landfall anywhere between the northern North Carolina coast and Massachusetts.

(See prediction graphic attached to this story.)

"The track model guidance continues to trend toward the northwest as Sandy interacts with an amplifying shortwave trough over the mid-Atlantic states," a forecast discussion advisory posted on the agency's website said Thursday afternoon. "However, there remains significant differences in regard to the timing of this interaction and where the northwest turn will occur."

Forecasters said the current, officiall track of the storm from the National Hurricane Center is the balance between two forecast models.

The storm is forecast to maintain strong tropical storm force winds of 70 m.p.h. by the time it reaches the Shore area, just shy of 74 m.p.h. hurricane force winds.

No watches or warnings have been issued for New Jersey, or any other area in the mid-Atlantic region, though tropical storm warnings and watches have been issued for entire east coast of Florida.

Greedy republican capitalist pigs made the pollution that caused Global Warming that made this Hurricane. If there is any damge or destruction it is all Mitt Romney's fault for being rich and greedy and hating poor people and women and minorities. Vote for Obama. he is the only one that can save the planet.

FYI people: Now is the time to adjust your refrigerators AND freezers to make them COLDER. It usually takes 24 hours for them to adjust to a new setting to lower the temps 1 or 2 settings soon,this way if the power does go out and you don't have any back up help, things will be colder and frozen longer.
