EDISON - Lots of clouds will crowd the skies over New Jersey today as the chance of showers lingers through the day.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist James Gregorio says temperatures will hit the mid-60s to near 70 degrees before cooling down to the 50s overnight.

The News 12 New Jersey Weather Center is closely following the path of Tropical Storm Sandy down in the Caribbean. Remnants from the storm could affect the state beginning on Sunday and into early next week.

The potential exists for a major coastal storm with heavy rain, high winds, coastal flooding and beach erosion.

Gregorio says the severity depends on the track of the storm and how Sandy interacts with a low pressure system approaching the coast. The storm also could move out to sea and have little impact on New Jersey.
