Hurricane Sandy is now making landfall with winds of 90 mph and a central pressure of 940mB, the deepest tropical system to hit New England ever.
I hinted at the strong potential for a system that could produce some damaging winds for northern Ohio last week, The magnitude of this storm was certainly not something I bargained for. Check out the visible satellite which shows the cloud shield as far west as Lake Michigan.
EXPECT WIND GUSTS ABOVE 60 MPH CLOSE TO THE LAKE ERIE SHORELINE TONIGHT AND EARLY TUESDAY. 45-55 MPH GUSTS ELSEWHERE
Lake Erie waves will be pushing 20 feet in spots (purple shades) according to this model early tomorrow morning
