Nelson County, Virginia
Everyone is wondering what Hurricane Sandy will do over the coming days as she spins northward along the eastern seaboard of the US. Friday, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, issued a state of emergency for the entire state in preparation of Sandy. Friday afternoon weather models showed Sandy to make landfall Monday into Tuesday somewhere near the Delmarva. Other Friday models show that shifting a bit north, better news for Central Virginians.
Accuweather.com has a pretty good segment here on what can be expected from Sandy and where she might head.
Regardless, the Central Virginia Blue Ridge will see some effects from the storm. Primarily gusty winds, and possible heavy rains Sunday night into Monday. There’s also the possibility of some snow in the highest of elevations, especially in Western Virginia and Eastern West Virginia.
Tommy will be keeping up with the storm over the weekend and updating as necessary.
