MACHIAS, Maine (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a rare blizzard warning for the Maine’s eastern tip.

Forecasters say Washington County is expected to be pounded by strong wind and snowfall that could top a foot on Wednesday.

Snowfall amounts will be negligible on the southern coast but the entire coastline will be buffeted by strong wind gusts. Meteorologist Mike Kistner said gusts upward of 50 mph will cause scattered power outages.

Forecasters say the center of the storm, to the south of Maine, could see hurricane force winds.
