Greensboro, NC -- As if Sandy didn't land enough of a blow to the Northeast another storm is forecast to follow in its wake.
Nearly a week after Hurricane Sandy pummeled the Eastern Seaboard forecast models continue to show a strong area of low pressure developing off the Carolina coast Tuesday afternoon and then tracking to the northeast as a strong Nor'easter.
The area of low pressure will strengthen off the Carolina coast over the Gulf Stream and bring heavy rain, 40 mph gusts and high surf to the Outer Banks. As the storm strengthens and tracks to the northeast it could produce 50-60 mph wind gusts, beach erosion, coastal flooding and heavy rain from Maryland to Massachusetts.
The hardest hit areas from Sandy will be especially vulnerable to more damage as many trees have been weakened and could fall, creating more power outages.
The storm will likely have its greatest impact of the northeast coast from Wednesday through Thursday.
