|Model Forecast Tracks for Sandy|
Over the next couple of days, Sandy will track to the north-northeast in response to an approaching trough and cold front over the eastern half of the U.S. She will predominately hold the strength of a category 1 hurricane but may briefly weaken into a strong tropical storm. That means winds will be generally between 65 to 80 mph. As a result of this track, the worst of the weather, strongest winds and heaviest rains, will remain just off the Mid-Atlantic coast this weekend.
