Ky. to Stay Dry After Hurricane Sandy Hits East Coast
While the East Coast prepares for Hurricane Sandy, western Kentuckians don’t have to worry about storms on Halloween. National Weather Service Meteorologist Ryan Presley says the area will stay dry after the hurricane hits the coast.
He says, “As the hurricane storm system goes up the East Coast, that may help to reinforce the high pressure system that is moving into our region, and it may result in a prolonged period of dry conditions. Also, at least for the initial period through the weekend, the winds will also be noticeably stronger.”
Hurricane Sandy is expected to make landfall somewhere between Washington and New York City Tuesday morning.
