(INDIANAPOLIS) - With Hurricane Sandy poised to batter the East Coast with high winds, torrential rainfall and massive surf, Indiana could feel some effects from the storm.

While the heavy rain and high winds are expected to stay largely east of Indiana, the state's weather will be impacted.

The National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio, which covers parts of eastern and southeastern Indiana, issued a special weather statement Sunday detailing some of the effects of the storm that are possible in Indiana.

"Remnants of Sandy will interact with an upper-level disturbance to provide the potential for windy and rainy weather conditions next week," part of the statement read. "There is some uncertainty regarding the exact track of this system and how it interacts with the upper trough."

A wind advisory will go into effect in much of central and eastern Indiana at 5 p.m. Monday and will last into Tuesday evening.

Sustained winds of up to 30 mph are expected, with gusts up to 50 mph possible.

The track of the storm will determine if the outlying bands of rain from the storm will affect Indiana. The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center as of 11 a.m. pushes Sandy on shore in New Jersey early Tuesday morning and moves it into central Pennsylvania, before turning it north into Canada, keeping most of the precipitation east of the state.

"This track will directly affect the amount of precipitation and wind that is observed in the Ohio Valley," NWS Wilmington said.

The forecast track will be adjusted more before landfall of Sandy.
