This NOAA satellite image taken Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012 at 1:45 a.m. EDT shows Category 2 Hurricane Sandy over eastern Cuba moving northward with sustained winds of 110 mph. A frontal boundary extends across the Upper Mississippi Valley and across the Central Plains with showers and thunderstorms. A warm front extends across the Central Great Lakes becoming stationary across Mid-Atlantic with cloudiness and some scattered light rain showers. (AP Photo/Weather Underground).
 
As Hurricane Sandy moves over Cuba, meteorologists are warning that it could bring severe weather to New York City by Sunday night. According to CBS NY, the storm's track isn't quite solidified yet, and a cold front could push it out to sea... "But if the front lags behind, the East Coast, including the New York City area, could be in for a direct hit." They add that the worst case scenario "had the hurricane slamming the New York City area with 5 inches of rain from Sunday through Tuesday, and wind gusts of 65 mph. A storm surge would also erupt... and some snow could also be seen."
