    Hurricane Sandy

    A major event for the US East Coast?

    Weather Journal: When Hurricane Meets Snowstorm

    Regardless of the exact landfall location on the East Coast, impacts will be felt from Florida to Maine. Nearly every single major weather model now shows the eventual “phasing,” or capture, of Hurricane Sandy by an intense polar airmass. The two primary medium-range forecast centers for the National Weather Service agree. The European ECMWF, generally considered one of the best weather models in the world, has shown this scenario consistently for the last five days.
    Meteorology geeks, what say you?

    Wasn't this the plot to the Day After Tomorrow? Is NYC going to be under 50 feet of snow come election day?

    Correction; we have lost about 30 degrees in about 75 minutes. Boom shaka laka!

    More anon.

    Sandy will be hitting the mid-Atlantic a good week before the election, though.

    Just in time to knock out phones and power during early voting and voter contact time on the East Coast.

    Yeah, but the areas that will be most affected by Sandy -- the Northeast -- is mostly solidly blue already. Shouldn't have much of an impact on the election unless it really dampens turnout in Virginia and possibly Pennsylvania.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how long PEPCO can leave us in the dark this time.

    Will the METRO be closed, too? Serious question given the closing of NYC subways.
    [redacted] them and the horses they rode in on.

    No announcement so far. Sounds like they're going to try to keep it open though.
