Hi, Sandy+, where’s the wind?

Feel free to post questions – I’ll answer them as info and access permit (battery down to 40 minutes using the lobby wifi, but they won’t let me plug in for power, due to ‘liability issues’ says the guard.

At 8am Monday – a breezy day in the NYC area.
The National Weather Service is looking for a band of strong winds coming ashore this afternoon with gusts to 60 to 75 mph then. This band should form as Sandy is reved up by the upper air impulse in the jet stream.

Key: Date/time in GMT (EDT subtract 4 hours, as I have noted in the first column)

  1. Crazy that they won’t let you plug in your computer!

  2. I’m back at home. Still have power, trees are shaking a lot. Last hour westchester airport peak wind about 40mph. Gust to 46 at airport last hour. Winds roaring during strongest gusts. Barometer down 14mb in last 7 hours (falling very fast).
