Meteorologists error on....

...the side of caution. It is far better to tell people to be mindful and vigilant, than disregard the risk entirely.

As the 11:00 am advisory reflects Sandy is now a hurricane, and the current forecasted error swath does indeed include all of the Outer Banks, I would not charge WWAY with hyping anything. A large storm can oscillate very easily.

There is a fine balance to forecasting storms, somewhere between Chicken Little and Rip Van Winkle. The Weather Channel has lost that balance. They are now always in full ratings Chicken Little mode.
