Too soon to know - the mention below says it all - it could or it go out to sea - have to wait to see:

It is projected to veer off towards Bermuda right now. It's to early to tell but there is a cold front coming down that could cause it to head up the east coast.

The latest update from the National Hurricane Center shows one potential scenario where we have a historic storm - one that really pummels the Eastern Seaboard. The other 11 scenarios in "the spaghetti model" show the storm so far out to sea that you'd need to go out to Fire Island if you wanted to see rough surf (the only impact)

I really wouldn't start worrying about it yet.

The interesting thing is that the jet stream really is in favor of this thing coming up the East Coast but so far most of the predictions are for that not to be the case.

Possible, but currently unlikely.

Whatever it does, Bloomberg will be hard pressed to make significant decisions given last year's fiasco.

But, a snowicane sounds like a blast! (with all apologies for travelers coming early next week....)

It's only Thursday - anything can happen or nothing can happen. Keep looking at the forecasts.

Agree -- don't stress yourself out too much, as 3 days is an eternity in meteorological time, and some of the models still show it blowing out to sea. Just keep your eye on the forecasts.
