The National Weather Service says the state is increasingly likely to feel the impact of Sandy, which slammed eastern Cuba Thursday morning.
A Hazardous Weather Outlook is in effect for the tri-state area, where there is a potential for strong winds, heavy rain and coastal flooding over the weekend and early next week.
Downed trees, branches and powerlines, as well as widespread power outages brought on by an unseasonal snowstorm, all but squashed the Halloween of 2011.

Chance of rain is in the forecast for the next few days, according to National Weather Service.
