Rainy and windy weather will return to New York City by Wednesday in association with a coastal storm. This storm could bring another damaging water rise to parts of the New Jersey coast and hamper cleanup efforts from Hurricane Sandy.
Thankfully, for New York City, the worst of the coastal flooding is expected to remain south of the area. Unlike with Sandy, winds will be out of the northeast if this storm takes the track currently forecast.
A northeast wind means that some water could pile up in Long Island Sound, bringing some coastal flooding to the north shore of Long Island and coastal Connecticut.
Farther to the south, Staten Island and Battery Park will be spared from the worst of the coastal flooding thanks to that northeast wind.
Still, rain and gusty winds will affect the entire Tri-State area beginning late Tuesday night and continuing through the day Wednesday.
Winds along the coast can gust to between 40 and 60 mph, which could cause debris leftover from Sandy to be tossed through the air. In addition, trees that were knocked loose by Sandy could be knocked over, causing additional power outages.
Enough rain will fall on Wednesday to cause localized flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas, but widespread river flooding is not anticipated with this storm.
There is still some uncertainty to the track of this storm, so, keep tuned in to AccuWeather.com over the next few days as details become clearer.
