NEW YORK (AP) -- Just what New York and New Jersey need after the devastation of Superstorm Sandy -- More wind.
The National Weather Service said an offshore storm that could pack gusts up to 55 mph is in Wednesday's forecast for the New York metropolitan area and the New Jersey coastline.
Meteorologist Joe Pollina said the storm looks like a classic Nor'easter, coming up along the Atlantic coast. He said it will not be nearly as strong as Sandy but could compound the damage left by last week's superstorm.
The weather service said the strongest winds will likely hit eastern Long Island.
Meanwhile, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said cold temperatures mean "tens of thousands" of people whose homes were damaged by the superstorm will need other places to live.
