A strong pressure gradient between high pressure to the northwest and Hurricane Sandy to our northeast will keep the winds strong across our region for the next several days.
On Sunday expect sustained winds between 9 to 17 miles per hour with gusts up to 23 mph. A front moves in Sunday night keeping the winds up until Tuesday. The front will drop next weeks temperatures into the 40s and 50s late at night with highs in the low to mid 70s.
Sandy is expected to make landfall along the New Jersey coastline late Monday night into early Tuesday morning. Folks in the northeast and mid-Atlantic are bracing for heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and a possible storm surge of 4 - 8 feet. Heavy snow is also a possibility in the Appalachians of West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania.
