BOSTON (AP-WWLP) — As the East Coast shivers through an unusually cold early spring, parts of New England are bracing for a storm that could bring additional snow.

More than half a foot of snow is expected to hit Southeastern Massachusetts on Tuesday evening into Wednesday. Parts of coastal Maine may also see snow.

National Weather Service spokesman Bill Simpson said Cape Cod and the Islands are expected to be hit the hardest, starting around the evening commute and lasting until Wednesday morning.

Boston, northern Massachusetts and coastal New Hampshire are expected to get 1 to 2 inches, while west of Boston to Worcester will get about an inch. Far northern Maine could get 4 to 10 inches.

Simpson says the Northeast has had below normal cold temperatures this spring.

A Blizzard Watch is in effect for the Cape and Islands, while a Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Plymouth and Bristol Counties in Massachusetts, and Newport County in Rhode Island.
