BOSTON — Forecasters say southeast Massachusetts could get the brunt of a snowstorm that's heading for the East Coast.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the coast, including Cape Cod and the islands, saying it could get 6 to 12 inches of snow through Monday evening. Gusty winds of up to 60 mph are expected with some whiteout conditions.

The rest of Massachusetts, plus Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut, could see winter storm conditions with an accumulation of 4 to 8 inches. The heaviest snowfall is expected during Monday's morning commute through the afternoon.

The weather service says New York City, Philadelphia and northern New Jersey could get from 2 to 3 inches of snow between Monday and Tuesday night. The snow could even stretch into Wednesday.
