A late-season hurricane may have a profound impact here, in a week

Hurricane Sandy, something I’ve talked about since Monday night, is strengthening rapidly, and is moving almost due northward. It will pummel Cuba and the Bahamas, and then parallel the U.S. coastline by Saturday through Sunday. However, there are indications that the storm may, once it reaches parallel to the Massachusetts coastline, may take a turn LEFT, to the WEST, because of it encountering a huge area of high pressure to it’s north, over Newfoundland. Highs spin clockwise, and the right to left motion at the bottom of the High would encourage whatever is left of the hurricane to move west, into us! It is a week away, and I wouldn’t bet the farm on it yet, but since Halloween is the same day as it’s expected POSSIBLE arrival, I want to get word out asap.

This is the latest storm track from the NWS:
