Winter storm watches posted for southern New England

BOSTON (AP) — Winter storm and coastal flood watches have been issued for southern New England as a storm affects the Atlantic Coast later this week.

The National Weather Service says effects from the storm, which is expected to stay south of New England, will be felt Wednesday night until Friday.

The winter storm watch for six to 10 inches of snow includes extreme eastern Connecticut, Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts. Snow is expected to begin in Connecticut Wednesday and spread north early Thursday. Lighter amounts are expected near the coast.

East- and northeast-facing Massachusetts shorelines could see flooding and beach erosion with high tide storm surges up to three feet and offshore waves up to 30 feet. The greatest flooding potential is expected Thursday and Friday mornings, at Scituate on Boston’s South Shore and Sandwich Harbor on Cape Cod.
