Potential winter storm could bring heavy winds, drop significant snow to southern New England



There is the potential for a significant winter storm later Monday into Tuesday.

The biggest concern is for heavy snow accumulations and strong winds which may result in coastal flooding/beach erosion along the eastern MA coast.

According to the National Weather Service, there is moderate confidence on a significant winter storm. There is uncertainty, however, where the risk for heaviest snow will occur in addition to storm intensity, timing, and the rain/snow line.

The NWS stated that there is a 50 percent chance that southern New England will see 8 or more inches of snow.

Strong winds may result in scattered and isolated power outages across eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island which may also include some downed trees.

Coastal flooding and beach erosion will be possible along the eastern Massachusetts coastline during high tide.

The potential for significant snow is possible across the entire region.
