(Newser) – This much is clear: Hurricane Sandy is belting the Caribbean today, and it will start dousing southeastern Florida tomorrow. What happens after that is key: Computer models are split on whether Sandy turns out to sea or heads up the East Coast, report USA Today and the Christian Science Monitor. If it's the latter, expect a nasty nor'easter next week that fouls travel from Virginia to New England and maybe even delivers snow to western New York and Pennsylvania—just in time for Halloween.

As of midday today, "chances are increasing for a major storm impacting the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast," says the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center.

Sure hope none of the forecasters get sued for costs if they say out to sea, and it turns inland instead.
