I'm really sorry to report this. High wind and coastal flooding watches are being issued in the Northeast as I write these words.

Here is my interpretation of the probabilities of 2 to 4"
and, the probabilities of 4 to 6 inches.
This storm is going to cause a significant delay to power restoration efforts as well as other recovery efforts for Sandy. While all of the details are not yet clear, I recommend that people throughout the area be prepared for a moderate to major Nor'easter. There is a list of preparatory items at the end of this posting (scroll down).
AccuWeather has a great briefing, including times and magnitude of high tides.
