Another storm heading towards already weather-beaten New York, New Jersey
Though there is still uncertainty over its exact course and timing, the new coastal storm could bring windy conditions with high winds in the range of 50 miles per hour.
"Unfortunately a strong coastal storm appears likely for the latter half of the coming week. While there is still some uncertainty regarding the precise track and timing of the coastal storm in the Northeast, substantial impacts are expected from this storm, many of which will be greater due to the damage caused by Sandy," the National Weather Service said.
The high winds could knock down trees already weakened from Sandy and the greatest threat would be near the coast.
The agency said while the coastal storm would be "nowhere near as bad as Sandy", the combination of storm surge and wave action could cause minor to moderate flooding and additional beach erosion along the mid Atlantic and New England coast.
For New York City and the New England region, the high tides during the middle of next week threaten to cause flooding.
The storm could also bring in wet snow in the interior sections from Virginia to New England.
The weight of accumulating wet snow could bring down tree branches already weakened from Sandy, especially where leaves might still be on
