Cavalier Weather Service Forecast Valid 10/29/12
Issued at 11:55 AM
Sandy is forecasted to make landfall along the southern coast of the New Jersey Shore this evening. Surface data have shown that with the combination of colder ocean water and nearby frontal systems, Sandy should make extra-tropical transition before the center of the storm touches the coast. That being said, this transition will not decrease the impacts along the coast. The Charlottesville area is currently under a High Wind Warning until 8 PM Tuesday, with winds increasing to 35-40 mph, gusting up to the 55-60 mph. Heavier rain will come later today and into the evening. The second half of the work week should bring drier and more fall like conditions to the area.
Tonight- Rain, heavy at times. Windy with a west wind between 25-30 mph, gusting up to 50 mph. Temperatures drop into the low 40s. Low 42. Chance of precipitation 100%.
Tomorrow- Showers, heavy at times. Windy with a west wind continuing between 25-30 mph, gusting up to 45 mph. Temperatures reach the upper 40s. High 49. Chance of precipitation 90%.
