Sandy Forecast: 70 mph Winds Overnight, Nearly 50 mph Tuesday

The NWS expected the dangerous part of the storm to pass by Tuesday night.

Perhaps the worst of ex-Hurricane Sandy was expected to come overnight into Tuesday, with slightly less treacherous conditions predicted during the day Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

As of 9 p.m., the NWS expected the Philadelphia area to get overnight winds 39 to 47 mph with gusts up to 70 mph, with up to a half inch of rain.

On Tuesday, winds are forecast to be 22 to 31 mph with gusts up to 48 mph, according to the weather service. Up to another three-quarters of an inch of rain is predicted.

From Tuesday night through Thursday, the forecast calls for chances of showers but no significant winds.

My son phoned me from over in the Downingtown region. He says the Brandywine is swelling to heights he has never seen before. Our region is being horribly affected by this storm. Please be safe, everybody, and keep your neighbors in your prayers.

Up here in the far reaches of East Mt. Airy on Tuesday at 9:45 am, we have the occasional raindrop and barely a breeze. Last night the wind was a howler for sure, and the dramatic trees and rain pounding on the east-souteast windows was quite a show, but nothing down in our block but leaves. It looks over. Is it?
