TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Forecasters say there’s increasing confidence that Hurricane Sandy could pose a threat to New Jersey.

The National Weather Service says it all depends on how Sandy tracks as it transitions into a large coastal storm and moves northward along the East Coast.

There’s the potential for heavy rain, strong winds, rough seas, beach erosion and coastal flooding beginning Sunday and into early next week.

However, forecasters say the impact will depend on how Sandy interacts with a deepening upper level low pressure system that’s approaching the coast.

Jersey Central Power & Light, which was criticized for its response to Tropical Storm Irene, says it has placed its employees on alert to be prepared for extended shifts and is monitoring Sandy.
