HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Weather forecasters expect New London County to be the hardest-hit part of Connecticut as a winter storm approaches with heavy snow and high winds.

The National Weather Service says 6 to 10 inches of heavy, wet snow could fall in southeastern Connecticut Wednesday through Friday morning and wind gusts could hit 50 mph, bringing possible power outages. A winter storm warning is posted for New London County from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 1 p.m. Friday.  (See the WTIC weather page.)

Forecasters say Fairfield and New Haven counties could see 3 to 7 inches of snow, strong winds and coastal flooding with tides up to 3.5 feet above normal.

The Weather Service says northeastern Connecticut could see 4 to 8 inches of snow and the Hartford area could get 3 to 6 inches of snow.
