NEW YORK

Weather experts had good news for beleaguered northeast coastal residents Tuesday: A new storm that threatened to complicate Hurricane Sandy cleanup efforts today now looks like it will be weaker than expected.

As the storm moves up the Atlantic coast from Florida, it now is expected to veer farther offshore than earlier projections had indicated. Jeff Masters of the private weather service Weather Underground says that means less wind and rainfall on land.

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