NEW YORK (AP) — Northeast coastal residents got some good news Wednesday. Weather experts say that a new storm that threatens to complicate Hurricane Sandy cleanup efforts on Wednesday now looks like it will be weaker than expected.


The storm on Tuesday was moving from Florida toward the Atlantic. As it moves up the coast it is expected to move farther from shore than forecasters had thought. Jeff Masters of the private weather service Weather Underground says that means less wind and rainfall on land.


Even so, he said winds could still gust to 50 mph in New York and New Jersey Wednesday afternoon and evening.


Storm surges along the coasts of New Jersey and New York Wednesday afternoon are expected to reach perhaps 3 feet.
