Don’t be fooled by the mild fall temperatures, East Coast. A snowstorm/hurricane hybrid could be headed this way. Hurricane Sandy is expected to impact the area between Florida and Maine next week, and with a predicted snow storm, the region might be in for a rare weather scenario. There is potential for several inches of snowfall on or around New York City, and with a potential 3.4 impact, one meteorologist has called Sandy “a potential billion-dollar storm for the Mid-Atlantic and New England.” The Wall Street Journal’s weather blog predicts two-out-of-three odds that Greater New York will be significantly impacted by the storm.
