11pm Superstorm Sandy Update and Photo Gallery | Weather
Here is the Latest on Sandy!
Sandy has made Landfall in southern New Jersey earlier tonight as a category 1 hurricane but now has lost its tropical status. They, the folks at the NHC, are calling it a "Post tropical cyclone".... We are calling it a superstorm for many reasons.. It is a historic storm as new York City has see the worst storm surge in its history!! Battery Park topped out at 13.5 feet.. the previous highest surge was with Hurricane Donna in 1960 at 10 feet. Sandy will continue to move west, but it is going to take a while for the effects to go down as NYC is under a lot of water. Look below for a lot of pics!!
Blizzard conditions are developing in parts of West Virginia this afternoon as the western side of Sandy is a major cold air producer!! There is a good chance that parts of WV will see 1-2 feet, possibly higher amounts as well! This storm will be changing to a pure Nor'easter over the next few hours as Sandy comes ashore.
Winds For N Georgia
Our winds will continue to gust around 20-30 mph for the rest of the afternoon as Sandy has taken all the air across the NE US and is sucking it all in. Winds will stay strong overnight tonight and through the days as all of N Georgia is under a wind advisory!
