Welcome everyone, this will be my first inaugural post on this blog. Looking out the next 7 days through Thanksgiving week, at this point it appears we will have quiet weather across the east coast. There will be a strong storm forming offshore by mid-week and this can produce a minor problem for coastal areas hit hard by sandy in the form of higher waves and some wind crashing into a now unprotected shore line. Normally this would not be a big deal, but because of the destruction we have seen to our beaches it now creates more of an issue. Do not rule out 8 ft waves Wednesday night through Thursday and wind gusts along the beach up to 30 mph. However,at this time I do not anticipate any major rain or snowfall from this event. Modeling has trended more westward over the last few days but I believe it will not effect our area in a major way, just cloudy conditions. We are still 5 days away so if I change my view on this it will be by tomorrow afternoon. Inside of 4 days it will be a habit of mine to stick with any forecast I create. Stay tuned tho because if this modeling continues to trend west we could be having a different discussion....more later
In terms of post Thanksgiving we are looking to have a cold and stormy start to December which will make for some interesting posts on this blog. Stay tuned for more details.
