New England braces for nor'easter that could bring 'wave after wave' of snow, coastal flooding

Coastal towns in Massachusetts are bracing for powerful waves and commuters are facing a tough morning drive as a nor'easter offshore brings waves of snow, strong wind and ocean water to New England.

Snowfall of 8 to 12 inches was forecast in central Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island by Friday morning, with 6 to 10 inches in Boston and nearby areas.

National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham says it will be a "conveyor belt of wave after wave of snow" coming in.

But powerful ocean waves and high winds are expected to cause more trouble than snow. A coastal flood warning is in effect for east-facing shores in Massachusetts, with possible 3-foot surges at high tide.
