TC Sandy - Conditions in Your Area
      #94062 - Wed Oct 24 2012 12:36 AM

Might as well start this now since some of you may want to report on sea/beach conditions as Sandy approaches from the south and southeast. This is the place to comment on what you are observing in your area with regard to the impacts of TC (Tropical Cyclone) Sandy.

Sustained winds, dark skies and many waves at Canaveral Seashores today (see attached pic) even though Hurricane Sandy is still 700km away from us. No rain yet.

Here in Vero Beach we've had some good wind. A recent 53MPH gust at the airport. Sustained winds seem to be in the low to mid 20's MPH. Higher at times. Some impressive...but quick squall lines have come thru. But not nearly as much as Issac. We've had brief periods of sun in between some of the squalls. Interesting day.

It started lightly raining here about 1 hour ago.
We noticed it because we heard the rain on our air conditioners, and it woke me...

57.4 degrees, 5mph winds, 30.02 pressure(and falling), 62% humidity

I'm going back to bed...

Winds are now 25-30mph. Rain is about an hour away based on radar. That will be the first outer band to reach me.

Note: My electronic anemometer is not accurate - had to use a hand gauge. The electronic one was running about 10mph slow.

It's been raining here for the past several hours. Winds are holding 20-30mph, fluctuating a little. Haven't had the hand anemometer outside for a while to verify, but it doesn't seem any stronger.

NAM is predicting an isolated pocket of up to 35" of snow near the MD/WV border, near the SW corner of Garrett County - that's nuts.

We have sustained winds around 30 mph here in Ohio, with gusts to about 45 mph. And Sandy is about 820 miles southeast of us. Unreal.

Here's a link to my local observing station. It ought to get real interesting by later tomorrow or tomorrow night, assuming it's able to keep operating. I'm about 2 miles down the shoreline from it.
