@JPB,
crazy to see the edges of the tropical depression reaching Chicago

I know it happens, but it always startles me.

@ehBeth,
the itty-bitty band of 10-15" (brown) that crosses northern IL and Lake Michigan is right on top of my house.

@JPB,
I don't much like the looks of the 5:00pm update. Cat 2 at landfall in the middle of the night. The storm surge along the MS and AL coast could be a real problem.

Live cam from Bourbon St. Until the power goes out, at least.

@JPB,
The live cam seems to have stopped working. Isaac is no longer a hurricane (70 mph winds) but is moving so darn slowly (6-8 miles per hour). There will still be huge amounts of rainfall throughout southern LA until tomorrow sometime.

Hurricane Sandy is now a Cat 2 with 100 mph winds. It looks like it is heading NNE but then might tilt NNW Sunday into Monday. What happens then in NE could get interesting.
Anybody got any maps yet of the weather systems that may collide?

@realjohnboy,
John of Virginia, this doesn't look good.

The path of Hurricane Sandy, which is pummeling Cuba, is predicted to collide with a rare set of atmospheric and astronomical conditions and form a "superstorm" that forecasters say could strike along the Eastern Seaboard with ferocity next week.

Call it "Frankenstorm" in honor of Halloween. And like Mary Shelley’s monster, it will be created from disparate elements.

"It's a combination of our most extremes," forecaster Jim Cisco, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s prediction center, told the Los Angeles Times.

The brewing storm, he said, is a "a reversal of fortunes."

"Normally, when a storm comes up the East Coast, you get wintry weather, and it'll be colder [in the North] and the South will be milder. In this case, it’ll be the opposite.”

Sandy will be felt in southeast Florida by Thursday, with strong winds, drenching rain and the likelihood of beach erosion. The storm is predicted to stay over water, but its outer edges will likely be felt up the Carolinas.

@Ragman,
Looking like it'll be ugly here on Monday; it kinda depends on the track. A Southern CT landfall will mean much nastiness here. New Jersey landfall - we'll probably just get rain.

@jespah,
I'd not want to be living along the exposed southern coast of Long Island or DelMarVa on Monday. With the southern CT coast..most of it's protected as the LI shields it a bit - from the winds and storm surge. Sadly, the damage may be from the damaging rain plus the wind ..plus meeting of storm fronts...etc.

I kind of wish that I was not so fascinated by extreme weather. I've some close friends and relatives in the ground zero and all along the east coast. The potential pathway is a superwide wind-field and worrisome.

I think what forecasters are saying there is a possible convergence probable of the coldfront moving in from northwest that makes a possibility of a large snowstorm (inland) a huge threat. With the foliage still being on the trees this makes for a possibility of tens of millions of housholds with extended power outages very real.

Then there's the increased storm surge along the northeast coast with there being a full moon present.

Just like last year.
We lost hundreds of tree in New York City in the Halloween Hurricane.
