Current models call for Sandy to either run along the coast line and hit land in the mid-Atlantic region on Monday afternoon or to "hook around" and then come into New York.
"The models have really settled in this solution in the last day or so," said hurricane specialist Carl Parker of The Weather Channel. "The models generally agree on the storm moving north, and then beginning to move to the northeast and grazing the southeast coastline."
"Still in both cases, we're talking about a widespread windstorm that affects most of the northeast," Parker said.
