As of 5 AM Tuesday, Sandy is a post-tropical storm with maximum sustained winds at 65 mph, located about 90 miles west of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and moving WNW at 15 mph. Sandy will continue to weaken but bring the chance for showers in our region right into Friday.
Power outages and numerous school closings are the norm today, as Sandy has brought strong, gusty winds to the region Monday evening and overnight. Gusts have averaged between 35 and 60 mph, with some spots higher than that. Today won't be as windy, though there will still be an east to southeast wind of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts to 50 mph possible, which may result in additional power outages.
Showers will continue today, with a few heavy downpours possible. Flooding has been reported in western and northern New Hampshire, but otherwise, the threat for flooding in our area has diminished.
It's recommended to still use caution if you have any travel plans today.
