AND SETH STUTMAN. GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY. WELCOME TO “MASS APPEAL. I AM SETH STUTMAN. I AM ASHLEY KOHL. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE WEATHER THAT LIES AHEAD. WE HAVE INVITED METEOROLOGIST TO JOIN US ON THE COUCH TO TELL US MORE ABOUT HURRICANE SANDY. GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE. BUSY. WHAT CAN PEOPLE EXPECT. OBVIOUSLY YOU DON’T WANT TO BE TOO SCARED. I AM NOT TELLING YOU TO CLEAN OUT THE GROCERY STORE AND BOARD UP YOUR HOUSE AND REPENT YOUR SINS. NOT GOING TO DO THAT WHATSOEVER. THIS IS A SITUATION THAT IS AT LEAST FIVE DAYS OUT. WE ARE GIVING YOU THREE DIFFERENT SCENARIOS ON WHAT COULD HAPPEN. IT’S NOT THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN AND THIS IS WHAT IS GOING TO BE DESTROYED AND STUFF LIKE THAT. I AM GOING TO SHOW YOU WHAT IS GOING ON WITH HURRICANE SANDY. SHE IS STILL A CATEGORY 2 HURRICANE PACKING 125 MILES PER HOUR. SHE TRACKED OVER CUBA AND NOW SHE IS TAKING AIM AT THE BAHAMAS. AS YOU SEE WE PUT A TRACK ON THIS. SHE MOVES FURTHER AND FURTHER TO THE NORTH. THIS IS WHAT WE CALL THE WOO. THIS IS UPDATED ACTUALLY IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES. THAT GOES RIGHT OVER US. THAT IS OBVIOUSLY WHAT WE CALL THE UNCERTAINTY. IT IS OFF THE NORTH CAROLINA COAST AT NOON ON MONDAY. IT WILL LIKELY DOWNGRADE TO A TROPICAL STORM AND A ANOTHER EASTER DEPENDING ON WHERE IT MAKES LAND FALL. THIS FOR ME IS A SCENARIO ONE. THIS WOULD TAKE A TURN INTO DELMARVA NEW JERSEY RIGHT INTO PENNSYLVANIA WHICH WILL GIVE US WIND AND RAIN. WORSE CASE SCENARIO IS NOMUMBER. IT WILL ARK OUT AND TAKE A DIRECT HIT WHICH WILL GIVE US THE HEAVIEST RAIN MOST RAIN AND THE STRONGEST WINDS. THAT IS WHERE WE WILL TALK ABOUT STRUCTURAL DAMAGE AND BEACH EROSION STUFF LIKE THAT. SCENARIO NUMBER 3 IT WILL JUT BACK OUT JET BACK OUT TO SEA. IF IT GOES BACK TO THE SEAS OR THE SPAGHETTI MODELS THIS IS THE COMPUTER MODELS THAT WE SAY THIS IS WHERE IT IS GOING TO GO. PRETTY CONSISTENT, IT WILL TURN INTO OUR AREA. NO NEED FOR ALARM. IT’S FAR AWAY. IT IS FIVE DAYS AWAY. WE HAVE SEEN THINGS DO A QUIRKY THING. IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS YOU WANT YOUR EYE ON IT YOU WANT TO CONTINUE TO TRACK IT EVERY SINGLE DAY. YOU HOPE FOR THE BEST PREPARE FOR THE WORST WHEN IT COMES TO THESE. ONE THING WE CAN EXPECT IS RAIN IT SOUNDS LIKE. BETWEEN LATE SUNDAY POSSIBLY ALL OF THE WAY OVER TO NEXT THURSDAY ESPECIALLY TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY IS WHERE WE GET THE RAIN AND THE WIND AND STUFF LIKE THAT. I REALLY HATE THAT IT COMES FROM FOR HALLOWEEN. I AM JUST THE MESSENGER. THANK YOU FOR COMING ON TO TELL US ALL ABOUT THIS AND GIVING US AN UPDATE. WE WILL STAY UPDATED WITH YOU. EVERY DAY I POST A BLOG ON WWLP.COM.
