EDISON - The pre-Halloween hybrid storm with its eyes set on the East Coast is looking more ominous by the hour.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist James Gregorio says there's the potential for heavy rain, strong winds, rough seas, beach erosion and coastal flooding beginning Sunday night. The latest track points to the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on Tuesday near the Delaware Bay area.

Gregorio says the severity of the storm will depend on how Sandy tracks as it transitions into a large coastal storm and moves northward along the East Coast.

Many around the Garden State are already making preparations for possible heavy rain, high winds and flooding.
