It's going to be a blustery day today with northerly winds gusting up to 20mph. Although the high is set to reach the low 60s, it's going to feel a little cooler than that, due to the fast winds. The unseasonably cool weather will dominate overnight as well as cold Canadian air spills into the region. You'll wake up tomorrow morning in the mid 30s with wind chills near freezing (32 degrees). So, make sure the wear their jackets again as they head off to school. Tuesday afternoon will be a few degrees warmer as highs hit the mid 60s. Keep in mid this time of year, highs average in the mid 70s, so we'll be about ten degrees below seasonal readings.
Afternoon readings will bounce back close to normal by mid-week (Halloween) as daytime highs reach the low 70s. They jump above seasonal by late week as we hit the upper 70s, and hold there through the upcoming weekend.
Hurricane Sandy is expected to impact 50 to 60 million people from the Carolinas to the Northeast. It's set to lose tropical characteristics this evening just before landfall. However, it'll bring major impacts such as high storm surge, strong winds, flooding, a few feet of snow and the potential for widespread power outages.
