Sandy strengthening; Expected to pass close to NC this weekend

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Sandy remains a tropical storm this morning and is accelerating toward Jamaica, where it will make landfall tonight. The storm will likely become a hurricane very soon, and could remain so as it heads toward the Bahamas Friday.

The track will be extremely important to potential impacts for Southeastern North Carolina. Once the system gets north of the Bahamas, all indications are that it will start to curve slightly out to sea. All models are currently showing this trend, and history supports this trend as well. Even with this offshore path, the storm may be close enough that clouds, some rain, and even some gusty winds just below tropical storm force will at least be a possibility for Saturday and Sunday.

Keep in mind these effects can greatly change with only a few miles difference in storm track, so keep it here as we fine tune the forecast. If the storm were to come a bit closer, we could experience much more in the way of wind and rain. The best thing you can do is just keep yourself in tune with our forecast at this point as we learn more about the storm. 

No matter what happens, high surf, and dangerous rip currents will be found at the beaches beginning Friday and lasting until Monday.

– Meteorologist Tim Buckley

‘HallowGREEN’ tips from Fort Fisher Aquarium

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Fort Fisher Aquarium is reminding area residents that Halloween can be a scary time for marine life. You may not realize it, but the choices you make when it comes to costumes, candy and decorations could negatively impact your favorite fish and other ocean creatures.

For example, all of those tiny candy wrappers add up to a lot of waste. Instead of tossing wrappers in the trash, start a pile and then take it to Fort Fisher Aquarium, where they’ll recycle it for you.

Instead of buying plastic decorations, a spokeswoman for the aquarium suggests using natural decorations such as real pumpkins and squash; Robin Nelepa also said in addition to their "hallowgreen" tips people can learn about when visiting the aquarium, kids can trick or treat Wednesday and Thursday night of this week.

It’s part of the "Trick or Treat Under the Sea" celebration. Get all the details when you watch Nelepa’s interview with ‘Good Morning Carolina’ anchor Ashley Jacobs, then check out their website.
