October 23, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Tuesday evening to you! Here’s the latest on Tropical Storm Sandy… They system is moving north and is becoming better organized. Winds are up to 60 mph, and it will become a hurricane later tonight or early tomorrow as it passes near Jamaica and eastern Cuba. This system will become a big threat to the Bahamas on Thursday and Friday, as Sandy moves over warm waters in that area. Sandy will then make a turn to the northeast in the direction of Bermuda, but big questions are in play after that northeast turn. Will Sandy turn back to the northwest and impact the northeastern US? Some model data shows this scenario, so we’ll be keeping a close eye on this storm.
At this point, we’ll continue to watch and wait, but major issues may become expected for the northeastern US in about 7 days… As for our local weather in west and central Alabama, we can expect a north breeze to develop on Saturday and Sunday, as Sandy moves close to the east coast of the US. This will push much cooler air into Alabama over the weekend. Our weather will stay dry, but the breezy north wind will make conditions feel pretty chilly. Winds could gust to 30mph at times on Saturday and Sunday.
Tropical Storm Tony has just formed in the central Atlantic this evening. Tony is no threat to land, as it remains weak and out to sea… At this point, winds are sustained at 40mph, as the system moves northeast at 12mph.
